  • 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.

          I have several bowls that I have turned a few are natural edge or have distorted a bit over time and I have not been able to finish the bottoms to my satisfaction.
          I have had a vacuum chuck for many years but getting the bowl centered is always a challenge. So I bought this setup https://ww...

          Most of the books have the page size pattern with a scaling factor on the page. I am fine with that. Then there is the issue of the less computer literate who will have no clue about scaling or have the resources to do so. Maybe for the oversize patterns have an additional scaled copy to fit a standard...

          I’ve migrated to poplar from Baltic birch for my puzzles in part because it’s easier to cut and doesn’t wear out blades as quickly as the BB does. I can usually cut 5x the number of puzzle pieces in poplar than BB with each blade. I currently get my poplar ply from Cherry Tree. They sell it in...
