  • 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,

                  I upgraded back in early winter. I got one with both a solid state as well as hard drive. I couldn't move over my Office 2010 because I'd bought it as a download (which was still functioning just fine for what I used it for) and I never switched it to subscription because of the cost. The old download...

                  I just picked up a couple of new heavy handled bowl gauges. 1/2 inch and 3/8 inch from two friends that have tool supply businesses.
                  Our next Scroll saw club challenge will be segmented scroll saw bowls. I don't sand my bowls, too time consuming, so I will be turning them after glue up.

                  One problem with upgrading was that many of the programs I use are now subscription based. That really frosts my butt I finally accepted the fact that I normally renew my software frequently anyway the cost difference is negligible.

                  I did not go with a solid state drive, probably...

                  Actually, I think mine is more than 10 years old. And what brand would that be? Remember who you’re talking to here about computers.

                  If you buy a new computer you want to get a solid state hard drive. No moving parts to break or wear out....
