  • First Box

    Made this domed lid box by Sue Mey from issue 46 spring 2012 SWC mag.
    Top is made out of hard maple but not sure what the bottom wood is. I got a lot of wood from a person's shop who passed away. Diped in BLO and spray laquer.

    Want to try Carole Rothman's apple tart box in the same mag next. This is so much fun!

    Sweeeeeet project, super sweeeeet cutting, and for your first box, I'd say you are a natural.
    Looking forward to more project pictures from you. Thanks for posting your box.

      Looks really nice. Would not believe it was a first box--cutting and finishing are super!

              Very nice Trackman....is the lid of the box flat or do I see a curve to it, from middle to the edges?

                      Nice. I always wonder how the designers draw/create those fancy patterns (the lid). It would be fun to design my own designs. I'd have to use a drawing tool, no way freehand!

                          Thank all of you for the nice comments! Yes Hawaiilad the top is rounded from the edge to about half way to the center. The pattern said to cut the frets out an than glue another piece onto it that was not cut. Drawed a pencil line around the out side and sanded down to the line.
                          Comments from all of you that do such great work means a lot to me.

                                Wow - Betty, what do you charge. I have things to do and I'm in the process of cleaning my shop, just to have room to do it. My problem is that I get the work bench cleared and then start working on projects again. I really need to do the workbench last.

                                I ordered and received the ORTUR Laser Master 2 from Amazon, the but haven't had a chance to even get it out of the box. Too much going
                                on right now. I got the 20 watt version, which is supposed to be good for cutting, but I don't think I'll be doing much of that. There will be a learning curve...

                                Rick---if you are looking for a fretwork piece perhaps you could take 2 patterns and merge them into 1....

                                I think it would be wonderful if the publishers would consider some of the comments and see if they might make some modifications....
