  • Beetle Pine Band Saw Boxes

    Hi everyone, just finished 2 more band saw boxes.

    The first one is from beetle pine, as you'll see the top drawer has a finger hole - thought I'd do them all that way but quickly discovered the lack of space in the others. The finish is 2 coats of BLO, lightly sanded, followed by clear lacquer. This is this first time I've used spray lacquer and it was a learning process in itself. Still have a couple small dribbles to work off.

    First photo shows the box side after a 100g up to 220 sanding, 2nd and 3rd are after the BLO was applied - really popped the grain out and 4th is the finished (!) box. Green flocking for the drawers. 9 1/2"h x 4 1/2"w x 4"d.

    The second box is from the same wood - beetle pine, finish is 4 coats of clear WOP, water base. The large drawer on the left has an upper and lower cavitiy. Will be flocking with a medium green moss color.

    Now to try some scroll saw boxes, I have pine, mahogany, cedar of various thicknesses - put a test on my skill at resawing.

    thanks for viewing

        Yes it is fun and addictive, I've glued up some more blocks but I'll let them cure for several weeks. Have just been picking thru some smaller wood and will try to adapt some of LK Ventura's patterns for the scroll saw, need to give it a whirl.

        Will review some patterns from Carole's latest book, there's some in there I really like. Must try them, a little different approach for me but it's all learning and practice for me.

          Its a marathon not a dance. My 14 year old grandson ran a 8:50 mile in the 10k and finished 150 out of 1550 runners! My 12 year old granddaughter ran a 11:16 mile and came in 661 out of 1600 runners. Beat her mother by 100th of a second! I’m sure Sarah let her cross the line first. Tomorrow is the...

          I must apologize to everyone on the list. I'm afraid my ornaments will be late. Thursday afternoon, Connie got checked into the hospital with congestive heart failure. Between that and her alzheimers, it has been an interesting couple of days. Once she is released from the hospital, she will go to an...

          These items, except the Christmas sign, are for 2 orders. Had a tough time this week, that brick wall kept getting in my way! Other than the market, I’m off until Monday! I decided to raise the price of the Christmas sign to $40. Tomorrow will be a heat wave - 45 at 6am! Mostly sunny. We’ll see...
