  • 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.

            He did the Baltimore run in October and finished in a little over 10 minutes. Of course it’s a very hilly course here and flat in San Antonio. Very proud of all of them.
