  • Just finished a few things for my fair.

    I just finished a few basket boxes with inlays that I created from clip art.
    I have also included a couple of my favorite ornaments.
    The puppy on a sled just made me laugh.
    The rose is Bloodwood and walnut stem.
    The Dragon fly is walnut body with mahogany wings. the light wood is maple
    the weave mahogany.
    I will be selling the boxes for about $35 what do you think.?

      Rolf,
      I think everything is pretty nice, love the inlay, especially the dragon fly.
      $35.00 is a good price for the boxes, you should have no problem selling them.
      And Rolf, when you join the ornament swap next year, I want one of those Merry Christmas wreath ornaments. LOL
      Thanks for sharing

            Those are really nice, Rolf. How do you do basket boxes????

            Are the inlays done with the table tiltled? And like Sharon I'd be interested to know the dimensions..

              Fabulous, Rolf. Tell us something about the techniques you used - I'm sure you've inspired a lot of folk with these pictures.

                Thanks for the complements.

                The instructions for making the Baskets is in a John Nelson Book
                "making wooden baskets on your scrollsaw 2nd edition" (Fox Chapel)
                The boxes are 2.5 in D x 3.5 in W x 3 in H.
                The basket consists of 7 individual layers that are stacked and glued together.
                The Inlay was cut with a 2 deg left table tilt , cut CC ( I think I will have to look) The inlay wood was on top the maple on the bottom.
                I then sandwiched another piece of maple to the inlayed part. then routed it.
                The lid assembly is 1/2 inch thick.
                Sharon I bought the Gold hinges from National Artcraft.

                The inlay was my own Idea.

                I almost used every machine in my shop for this project.
                Bandsaw and planer (resaw wood) Table saw for cutting parts to size.
                Scrollsaw and router, Sand flee and flap sander for finishing.

                  The boxes are very slick and I think well worth your price. When you display them, be sure to put up a card identifying the wood varieties you use.

                  From making very simple sliding-top boxes, I found that making a small box is darned near as much work as making a big one.

                    Very, very nice to everything Rolf. That basket weaving is fun isn't it. I've made a ew of John Nelson's basketweave clocks and have had no problem selling them so know your boxes will go well. I like the inlays - haven't done that myself yet.

                    Boy are we going to look forward to your ornaments next year.

                        Terrific work Rolf. At $35 those boxes should go very quickly.

                          WOW! Those boxes look great! I like the dog, as well. You should do very well in selling them.

                            Sharon,
                            To give you an idea of the size of these boxes I attached a picture of the first box I made in July.

                              Hi Rolf

                              Don't you find you have a lot of waste wood after making those boxes?

                                I think it might be a letter that one would need to use the left index finger. Perhaps you need a heavier hammer.

                                Hi Rolf - the unit I bought will also do Tig welding once you buy the optional accessories - torch, nozzles etc: - plus it will do conventional stick welding too. I doubt I'll be heading down the TIG route anytime soon, at least not for the projects I have in mind at the moment.

                                Jim I bought a mig welder the last time I did a frame off restoration on my TVR. I had a few frame cracks. I bought one that used shielding gas. I never really mastered the power vs feed vs moving the torch. Using it only a couple of times a year did not help.

                                Partly because I have trouble seeing small letters with my one remaining eye and also because my existing wireless keyboard gave up the ghost a couple of days back I went out this morning and bought a new wired keyboard from our local Oice Depot.
