  • Octagonal Jewelry Box

    Not much special about this box, except that I used all scraps including the box side. The pattern is by Gary MacKay and found in SWWC Summer issue #15. It is a small box measuring about 4" in diameter and 2 1/2" high. The woods used are Cherry and Sycamore. The blades are FD Polar #3 and #9. The finish is sanding sealer and spray Shellac. Comments welcome.

      Thanks. Only problem, the sections are not exactly the sme, so you have to rotate the top until it matches.

            Another great looking project Denny. Thanks for letting us know about the "fit" on the lid. Thanks for showing.

              Thanks Melanie. I placed the lid on the base and sanded with a spindle sander for fit.

                I did indeed have the blade in upside down. I was using some Bosch blades that I picked up from Lowes.
                On Friday I got some Olsen blades in the mail. I hadn't ever seen any blades this thin. It was a bit of a struggle seeing the teeth, but I was able to feel the top and bottom of the blade...

                It is a pattern from Neal Moore's book "Wildlife Portraits in Wood." He has some other interesting designs in that book and gives full instructions on how best to make each project.

                Each of the pattern parts are cut from a piece of 12mm plywood. Then they are stained their respective...

                I received mine yesterday but didn't get to look through until this (Sunday) afternoon. Carole had another great article in it. This one was on a Dice Tower.

                When looking at the dice tower, I didn't notice the author until I was the next page and I looked back. It was Carole!

                Very well done. Can you show a side view to get a feel for the depth?
