  • Pineapple Welcome Box

    Hello Everyone
    Evelyn started a new job about 2 weeks ago I wanted to make a box or dish of some kind but I didn't know what until a few days ago. The company she works for has a pineapple as it logo. I remembered that I had a book with a pineapple box. It's called "Custom Wooded Boxes For The Scroll Saw" by our own Diana Thompson. It's the Pineapple Welcome Box in the book. I used poplar for the box it has just the right amount of green, yellow and brown. I did a glue up of 2 pieces of 3/4" for the box sides and 1/4" lid and box bottom and glue up of 2 pieces of 1/4" for the lids underside, this part was a change I made I thought 1/2" would look better the 1/4" since the box was 1 3/4" tall. I used shellac for the finish. Evelyn is happy with the way it turned out. I think I'll be making some more of these once her coworkers see it. As always any and all comments are welcome

      Came out really well. Does this mean you're moving to Hawaii?

        Thanks Larry and Carole. No we are not moving to Hawaii we like it were we are and beside Larry would have to give up the top scroller position if I were to move there
        Oh I forgot to say that I enlarged the pattern 20% it makes the box a bit more useable.

                Thanks Dan, but there are allot of great Scroller's out there and I think you fit into the group as well. Oh, and by the way, there is still more room here in the Islands. You all can come for a visit and stay as long as you wish...

                          Thanks everyone for the complaments on the box and the comgrats for Evelyns new job. Her boss really liked the box and asked if I could make one for her. She wants her to be a little darker. I have the box sides gluing up how. I'll have another project for Evelyns office just about finished pictures and thread coming soon.

                            That is the one store I physically get sick as soon as I walk in. The odor of rubber is overwhelming and I’m good for 3 minutes before I have to leave. Sure glad other stores aren’t like that. Hmmm maybe my bank balance would be higher if they were.

                            I wonder if their effort to offer better quality products may have something to do with it. Seems like they want to market themselves as something more than just a cheap tool supplier. Maybe reducing the number of things eligible for the big discount coupons is part of a campaign to change their image....

                            by Bill Wilson
                            I've owned both tilting table and tilting head saws. My current saw is an EX-21 (pre-Chinese made version) with the tilting head. I have to say that for beveled cuts, I much prefer the EX over my previous tilting table saws (Craftsman and Dewalt). I think a lot of it is the rack & pinion angle...

                            Just a random annoyance . . . . Anyone get frustrated by the Harbor Freight ads that say no exclusions, then you see the details and see "for items under $20", or worse yet, in super small print, "Can not be used for: Atlas, Bauer, Central Machinery, CoverPro, Hercules, Predator, compressors,...
