  • The Cupcake Box Video is up and running!

    I'm dedicating this two-video set to Trout, for doing such a fantastic job with the cupcake boxes.

    I hope these videos help clarify some of the techniques needed to make these boxes. They really are pretty quick and easy, once you get a rhythm going.

    You can access them from my blog, or use these links:

    Very well presented. What brand dust mask are you using? Nice job.

          Glad you like the videos. I went crazy trying to upload them, since my internet connection kept getting disconnected. Once it was up, however, the rest was smooth sailing. iMovie is a really neat editing program--gotta make some more of these so I don't forget how to use it.

          Mike, my dust mask is Willson Saf-T-Fit Plus N99 Dust Mask, Sealing Flange, Valve, which I bought online from Professional equipment. Comes to a little under $3 each, packed in a box of 10. It's pretty comfortable, and comes in 3 sizes. It's an interesting site to check out.

          I drew the line at wearing safety glasses for the video--the dust mask and hearing protection were all I was prepared to take on and off. I need to be more conscientious about that, though. My eyes may not be great, but they're the only ones I have!

            I really like your tool selection. That belt sander looks like something I need next.
            The videos are great!

              Thanks, Rolf. I guess I'm just a ham at heart!

              That Jet belt sander has worked out really well, despite some reservations we had about all the plastic. It's in its "winter position" now, with the disc against the wall, so we can bring the car in. The table for the belt sander does not have an angle gauge, (needs a Wixey) but it can be adjusted so that even at a steep tilt, there's very little space between the table and belt, great for sanding small pieces without a serious mishap. The table for the disc is more conventional, with a gauge. The sander tilts easily to horizontal, with just a large hex nut to loosen, and the dust collection is pretty good.

              We're so short of space that everything has to count. If we could, we'd get a drum sander and a sawstop, but then I'd have to give up the freezer. I'd glad I got the SandFlee (based on your use of it), which has been invaluable as a small jointer, and for using the small sanders. Saves wear and tear on the drill press.

              And even if we didn't have all the stuff that we were able to fit in, it is soooooo much better than using the community shop!!!!! And coffee is just steps away!

                  WOW.......
                  10:30 this morning I was asked to cover the district mail run, I said sure but I needed to run home to get my glasses....while I was home I decide to check in here to see what was new and when I saw this post I had to check it out...
                  when I saw that Carole dedicated this video to me sent me to the moon!
                  unfortunately I had to wait until I got home to watch the video's but I sure had a big smile on my face to finish out my work day....

                  now that I watched the video, I screwed up! my problem is that I don't give the instructions time to set in! I just jump right in!

                  great video Carole.....where was all your dust, I was covered from head to toe on this project...

                      Thanks, WGR and DW. Glad to do it--they're fun to make. And if they help you guys make a better cupcake, it's worth the trouble.

                      Trout--how can you say that you screwed up? Dedicating the videos to you was my way of thanking you for the great job you did. And if you got some hints from the video, so much the better! I did get pretty dusty--it just doesn't show. I think that's hard to avoid, especially since the sanding is pretty aggressive. At least it was only maple dust, not padauk, so I didn't turn all my towels orange!

                        Carole, nice videos. I'm sure you've thought of this, you could make it into a ice cream cone with a boxs in the bottom part and one in the top. The top could have a pivet at the top to open. Lance

                          Lance, one of the other projects in the book is an ice cream box, so you must have read my mind. The box part is the dish, and the lid looks like an ice cream swirl, and lifts off like the cupcake icing.

                          But I didn't forget about pivot lids--they're just in a different chapter.

                            That was really fun Carole..And generous...
                            I found it amusing that you presented them at first in your kitchen...

                            When I can afford a decent dust collection system, I'll be able to get busy....
                            My landlord, (and second Mom), would have a cow if I were to kick up that much dust.
                            I'm lucky she lets me have my scroll saw, (honestly, I think she kinda loves that part, She loves me, and she loves my art).
                            ..In the mean time, I'm considering simply hand carving the tops...

                            Thanks for the look into your world, it was nice...

                              I live in my kitchen, Jim. Half my YouTube videos are on baking, half on woodworking. It's also has the best large work surface in the house.

                              And speaking of generosity, how about all the effort you and Jim (Mex-Italy) put into your inlay challenge and tutorial? If we all didn't try to help each other, it would be a sad state of affairs!

                                Well, yesterday, I shot my 18 in the morning. The grands came over and I got one of em to try it out. I had to demonstrate so I got another 12 or so in. Last night I finished up with 90 for the day. Going to challenge myself to one hundred arrows a day for one hundred days. Made an excel spreadsheet...

                                For me to write something like this with my woodburner, even with the fine ball tip pens, is just not possible for me. The variations in the wood grain really complicate things.

                                A few weeks ago Elliott was looking around and saw a bow and arrows in the rafters in the basement. PopPop I didn’t know you had a bow and arrow. I don’t. It’s Mimi’s. Been a long time since I used it. Maybe I should get it out again.
