  • Puzzle box technique

    When I cut the puzzle boxes in the last issue I used a bit of a different technique than in the article.
    I did the first cut the normal way but for the second cut and cutting the bottom off I did as pictured below. I found that the parts were much more stable on the saw my way.

        I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

        If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

        The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.
