  • Mesquete band saw box and pen

    I presented this box to Katsue this evening. She was amazed.
    I put the pen there as a size reference.
    I used part of a limb from our son's mesquite tree for both projects. The knob is a piece of a small mesquite limb. As you can see in the bigger piece there is a light colored wood just under the bark. On smaller pieces the lighter part is a larger portion of the wood.
    I finished it by soaking it in boiled linseed oil, (blo), wiping and letting it cure a couple days in the warm Arizona heat then a couple coats of spray can lacquer.
    The pen has blo and super glue for a finish.

    Very nicely done. I love the "Live" drawer. Thanks for sharing them with us.

      Very nice box Stephen. How hard is Mesquete and how did you get the bark so attached?

        Thanks for the comments.
        What is a live drawer? Glad it is something you like whatever it is.
        The bark came that way Larry. I soaked it well in blo as I said to make the bark darker and preserve it's shape. I kinda think I may need to super glue it back on someday, if it comes loose. It took a lot time to blow the extra oil out of the crevices in the bark.

          Nicely done. "Live Drawer" is the same as a real working drawer as opposed to just lines simulating a drawer.

            Tony have fun, There is a great lightburn forum on face book also for Orture I would assume. What size did you get?

            Linda, With the laser engraver I just jumped in and then realized I had bought something that was very limiting and started to research after the fact. I know better, but...

            Good guesses, but no. It’s very useful and “outside the box.”

            My first thought is to hold the small paint bottles, but the holes are not symmetrically spaced....

            I am of the older crowd, LOL , I was blessed with a father, old world German tool maker and a Mom that turned into a techno junky. She got into computers in her mid 70's and digital embroidery, started digitized music that she played using computer software. she was a seamstress, by profession.
