  • 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,

                  When we started out, it was 45 deg and rain. When we got there it was 44 deg and rain. By the time we left it stopped raining but was 42 deg. and windy. Luckily we are under cover but that doesn’t stop the wind. I sold 4 baskets, Sealife puzzle and a few other things. I moved the coffee grinders...

                  I thought I read you use shrink wrapped bags for your puzzles. Where do you get them from?...
