  • Inlay Box

    I made this box as a present. The top Is Ash with Redheart inlay and the logo is for EA Sports video games. The box is made with 1/8" and 1/4" quarter sawn red oak. Corners are mitered with a shooting plane and reinforced with Ash splines. The bottom inside was lined with black leather.

    The finish is a coat of white shellac to seal and multiple coats of wipe on poly sanding between coats.

    I added a picture of my homemade flat sander I used for sanding down the splines. It is powered by a Shopsmith which works well with variable speed.

        Excellently done. That was very clever about the sander. Thanks for sharing this with us.

          Great job all around. Beautiful box. I really like when people build their own tools. Interesting height adjustment knobs on the sander.

              Sad but seeing this trend more and more. I think there are several reasons. In general fewer people are interested in hand crafted goods made by local artists. They see what they like and buy it no matter if I was hand crafted locally or commercially produced. Second the made overseas stuff is cheaper...

              The set screw Carole mentioned is opposite the blade tightening knob. She is correct the screws will make the blade be off center. I had only one problem with the DW. There is a fitting on the end oif the motor arm. Mine came loose and made a racket. I followed the video you mentioned and it was very...

              Start by retracting the set screw fully on both upper and lower clamps, then turn them each the same amount until they have protruded enough to grab the blade when you tighten the thumb screw. If for some reason the blade is still not completely perpendicular, adjust them until it is. Should not be...

              A lot of fairs in this area are going back to the way it used to be meaning you need to submit pictures of your work and some equipment. A lot of promoters are also visiting craft shows and talking to vendors and asking them to apply for their show. this is my 3rd year at the howard county 3 day show...

              If my memory is correct you have a set screw on the left side of blade clamp and the thumb screw on the right side on both upper and lower blade clamps. If you do not adjust both set screws so they are the same (just proud of blade clamp slot), your blade will not be square.
