  • Work in progress on cupcake box

    I have been working on my cupcake box most of the day today!! It felt good to get back into the shop after a couple busy stressful weeks! This is how far I got today:


    The base is Butternut, which I think is way to "stringy" for this. The icing is Cherry. It's not glued together yet. I tried to make it look "swirled" but I don't think I sanded the bottom of the icing layers enough.

    Thank you to Carole who responded to my multiple messages with questions. Trout and Wood Dog also gave me advice on this!! What a wonderful group!!! Thanks for looking!!

        I like the look of the butternut for the base, even if it is, 'stringy'.
        I can't wait to try my hand at one of these.
        Yours came out beautiful...!!!!

          At the time I thought "Ah, spit!" (or words like that) and just threw the blade in the garbage. It was the #5 size blade. I suspect it would cost more to have it done than the cost of a new blade. The owners manual is not very helpful, the wording is awkward, having been 'translated' into...

          The brazing process doesn't look too bad. I have seen the welders built into the industrial bandsaws, so out of curiosity, I looked that up and that process is pretty cool to watch also, though trying that on something this small would probably light the whole thing up....
