  • Round Box

    This is a 5" box cut from Poplar it was in Scrollsaw Woodworking Magazine on page 50 of the new issue. The recommend 2" stock for the side walls but I didn't have any so I used 3 pieces of 1/2", I should have glued them together before I cut them but I didn't (Lesson Learned) It was impossible to glue them together and get them perfect, so had to do some sanding. Notice the top is curved, that really sets it off. When I first put it all together I thought it was ugly but then after rounding the lid, I had a smile on my face. Used 1/8" plywood for bottom and lid inside.

    Looks good, did you round the lid before or after cutting it? what wood is the top or is it stained?
    I am thinking of turning the top and then cutting the fretwork, just have to be clever with the pattern.
    OOPs just figured it out while writing this. Let you all know how it works.

      Rolf, I think it may cause a problem getting the pattern to lay right if you round it first. The rounding is what really makes the pattern look good. Good Luck.
      I used Poplar for the top and stained it with Red Mahogany Spray Stain and then Laquer.

        Okie, I will put the pattern on the back not on the curved surface and use my x-ray vision to see the pattern when cutting.
        All kidding asside I will cut it from the back.

            Hi Rhys - I did finally get the center stand for the bike a couple of weeks back after it was stuck in customs for almost a month. Still have to put it on. The paddock stand will help me do this - Lol!

            Of course you are correct in that the center stand does a similar job but the advantage...

            Did you ever get the centre stand for the bike? A paddock stand does the same thing finally, I guess.

            Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

            I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...

            Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...
