  • 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

                    Celtic knot-shamrock cross
                    by Ennobee
                    My wife fell in love with the shamrock cross pattern in the spring issue of SS&W. So I had to make her one as soon as I found the time. Off course, not being able to leave a good pattern alone, I decided to turn it into a segmentation using some real hard broken pallet wood I 'disposed off' at work....

                    Hi Jim.
                    glad to hear back from you. I have been absent almost just as long, but that was just because my 9-5 morphed into a 12-hour a day job due to... Something with the economy I guess. So yes. Good luck with your house. How come I have the feeling that after all this work you'll end up living...

                    Had to smile at that, as I bought that exact same hammer drill, for about the same reason

                    by jim_mex
                    I have my Dewalt mounted onto an adjustable metal stand I made which after setting the table at different degrees of inclination I find 7 1/2" degrees to be fine for me. However before deciding on whatever angle you want to set the table you need to decide what seat height of stool or chair you...
