  • Desk/box thingy christmas gift

    Here is a desk or mantel gift I made as a Christmas gift for my son. He is a BMW fan, has had many over the years.

    It has a clock, thermometer and hydrometer, and a BMW emblem (a Roundel) on the lid. Got the Roundel off Craigs List.

    Made from 1" maple burl, and finished with tung oil. Size is about 6" wide 7" tall and 5" deep. Approximate dimensions since I forgot to measure it when finished.

        Thanks Catlyn. I have a little more of that wood, trying to think of how to use the rest of it.

            It is nice wood, great finish on it with the oil. Like the project too.

                    Found 1" slabs at Global Wood Source. I have no way to rip any myself so I grabbed a couple, around two square feet each. Kind of hard to find thin slabs.

                          What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                          The bags seem easier on the surface.
                          But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                          Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

                          As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

                          I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....

                          I shrink wrap all my puzzles. It is the best method I have found. I do not use a cardboard backer as some do. I use shrink wrap bags that I get from Amazon or Ebay. 8" x 12" will fit 95% of the puzzles I make.

                          To use the bags you will need a sealer. I have one very similar...
