  • I just finished....

    I just finished a box for my wife. I got the pattern from Custom Wooden Music Boxes for the Scroll Saw by Rick and Karen Longabaugh published by (all our favorite) Fox Chapel Publishing. The box is called the Victorian. I didn't put the music box movement in it, she wants it for a jewelry box.

    I used BBP, numbers 3 and 5 Flying Dutchman blades. Finished in Minwax water-based wood stain Deep Ocean.

    All comments welcome.

      I love it.
      You have done a great job.
      When I first saw the thumbnails I thought the camera had a color problem, but when I enlarged them I see a real nice finish on the piece.

              Thanks for all the comments. It was fun cutting this box. A little tricky with it in a hex shape, but not too bad.

              Thanks again,

                  Twenty years in electronics retail and here is a quick dirty way to tell the difference:
                  a fast blow will only have the wire element. Slow blow almost always has some extra structure that will be left behind after the fuse blows.
                  Secondly, there is a series of three letter engraved on one...

                  They look like David Spielmann's Designs to me. I will check my library this evening, but I bet you already that they are from one of his pattern books.

                  Thanks all - you folks do wonders for my ego with your comments and importantly fire me up to keep trying new things

                  Scott - once this Covid situation has passed I'll definitely be heading up to NC. I'm tentatively thinking late spring/early summer next year. I am not sure just what pointers...

                  I found this information on fuses in general.

                  Blowing type. Fast-blow fuses will blow as soon as the current reaches the fuse's amperage rating, while slow-blow fuses are designed to tolerate a large number of startup surges and modest short-term overloads without blowing.
