  • Booksafe v2

    This is my latest version of the book safe. I used Pine,Poplar ( the 1/2 dowel ) and maple 3 ply for the top and bottoms. Stained a Colonial Pine, flocked in red.

        The 1st time I free handed the cut but that was not good enough as I had to really sand it to get it flat.

        This time I used 2 spring clamps one on each end to hold it while cutting. I was able to ride along the fence with the clamp handles to get a decent cut on the dowel.

              Simon I made the pattern. In the pictures attached is a .pdf that describes how I made the box from start to finish.

                WD I used a graphics program and made the wording then using the mirror function reversed it so that when I transferred the wording onto the wood it would be correct. I used hexane to partially dissolve the laser toner from the printed page. look at the .PDF I included it describes the process.

                  Thank a lot DW, and sorry I haven't seen the file on the first message.
                  I was in a restaurant 2 days ago, and they gave us the bill in rather the same box... only the opening system was different (with 2 hinges).
                  Thank again for sharing your pattern...and to make the pattern.
                  Best regards

                    SLRA does a “spot” check. He’s lucky I’m keeping him around. It was free with a purchase at harbor freight. When people pick up a basket to examine, usually first time customers, they inspect everything for glue ups, drill holes, etc. of course, I don’t think half of them know what they are...

                    Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...

                    Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...
