  • Inside Finish on puzzle boxes

    I am finishing some boxes to put the puzzles in and wonder if i should finish the inside of the box and if so, with what type?

    I am spraying lacquer on the outside, just not sure if over time any type of finish will effect the puzzle pieces.

    What material are you making the boxes from. Have you considered adding a felt lining? Perhaps flocking the interiors?

      i have a couple made of cherry and some in ash. i also did a box from some left-over bamboo flooring which has a cork liner which is fine.

      i did consider flocking but thought that maybe some of fibers would get knocked off by the sharpness of the puzzle pieces.

        Actually I have found flocking material to be quite robust and hardy.

          Among other things. I was surprised to see 190 proof. Everclear tops out at 150 proof here in NC, but I have seen it at 190 in Georgia.

          What was the old college recipe? Equal parts Hawaiian Punch and Everclear? You pour it into Mayo jars, put the lids on and store in the original boxes....

          I saw a "practice pattern" to learn how to operate my saw. I decided to print out what I thought was a fairly simple pattern that would cover all the cuts and possibly have something at the end. Please tell me that the pattern lines are really just suggestions. Improvisation is acceptable....

          Those are great! I would be interested in seeing how you box them.

          BTW, Everclear is banned in some states but still available in others. I also recently saw another brand of 190 proof at the local ABC store here in Gibsonville, NC. (I did a quick Google and found the brand is Diesel)
