    Great work on that one Tony;
    Thanks for showing your excellent craftsmanship.
    I presume you are making your own patterns? ? ?

    I have made dozens of Bandsaw boxes . All my patterns were out of a book which I purchased except for one which is of my own design . It is the one with the clock in it which can be viewed near the bottom of the album at this link.

      Thank you for your kind words

      William,

      thank you for your kind words of encouragement.

      For me making sculpted bandsawn boxes is the best thing that has happened to me since I was married and had a family.

      Yes, I like to push the boundaries and experiment with functional shapes and designs and to be able to share that.

      Be good,

        that is fanastic, to be able to visualise and plan such a work is well beyond the capacity of most people - well done!

            Wowie!

            Hi Tony,

            That is really nice.
            I like the fluidity of the design, and can see why you named it "Ship"

            I went to look at your website and was wondering: What is that fantasmagoric piece of wood in the left uppper hand corner? It is a beauty!

            I'll go back and visit more in depth, you are doing something of interest to me. I have meant to do bandsaw boxes for a while, but haven't gotten to it. I think you will be an inspiration for me to move my butt

            respectfully,
            Marcel

              Hi Tony
              Thanks for the kind words
              In the heading of your reply to me you added
              The Dome Clock
              That led me to beleive that you clicked on some other albums in my site.
              NO . . I did not design the Dome clock. That is a fairly popular pattern from Wildwooddesigns and much easier to cut out and assemble than it looks. . But I couldn't begin to design a fretwork pattern of that magnitude. I like cutting them out but I don't like designing them.

              The one that I was referring to was the bandsaw box with a clock in it near the bottom of my Bandsaw Box album.
              Sorry if that caused any misunderstanding.
              Band Saw boxes are fun to make . It is just like "big" scrollsawing on the bandsaw and the drawer pulls are the only parts I made on the scroll saw.
              Here is the one of my own design that I was referring to. One with drawers closed and one with drawers opened to show the flocking on the interior. I only made two of them. Hopefully some day I will get time to make some more.
              I know I have that pattern stashed away here somewhere amoung my thousands of other patterns.
              Those two were actually made in seven glued up layers from recycling free pallet wood

                Bill,
                That box is excellent, and your own design, I am impressed. I think it should be next weeks pic of the week. You mention the flocking in the drawers, is that the spray on flocking that's available, or is it felt glued on? Do you think it would work on the drawers of a chess cabinet?

                  My error, a case of mistaken identity. Your design is great, I like the fact that you have used recycled timber - there is no such thing as scrap wood. What glue did you use for the laminations?

                  I can see that you've transferred your scrollsaw skills to the bandsaw and achieved a smooth drawer edge. Have you used sleepers to re-position and centralise the drawers within the cabinet cavity, that information is available in the free download plans.

                    It is Tasmanian Sassafras

                    .....wood in the left upper hand corner? It is a beauty!



                    Marcel

                    thankyou for your kind words. The work you are referring to left upper hand corner) is my Mascot known as "E.T.", it is Tasmanian Sassafras, Black Heart variety.

                    Nature is a far better artisan than I will ever be!

                      Marsha ;
                      Yes , that is the spray on flocking I got from Lee Valley. It is very durable. I have used it in jewelry boxes and cutlery boxes and turned pen display cases and it stands up very well . Better than I expected. Should work very well on the drawers of a chess cabinet.
                      Here it is in green in one of my three pen display cases.


                      Tony;
                      I used Titebond11 yellow carpenters glue for the laminations.
                      Not sure what you are referring to about the sleepers. I just sawed and sanded carefully on an oscillating spindle sander to get a nice fit on the drawers. I will check out the free download plans you mention. I made those boxes before I learned to properly round off the edges more on the front of the drawers and the front edges of the case to give them more of a depth look. Lots of little tricks in making bandsw boxes as you know but it is very rewarding to see how well they are accepted as gifts and at craft sales .

                        Whatever way you decide to do if you are happy and your brother in law is happy it was a good idea. If you really want to be brave use it as a learning experience. Make several of them using different suggestions and see the difference....

                        Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

                        Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

                        My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
                        I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
                        Was it a good idea.....?...

                        Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

                        The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...
