  • 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.

          Thanks guys, I have a lot of HDU left over from my sign business in various thicknesses.
          HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...

          My kids always call me since I am the one who probably did the stuff they are calling about.

          I know it's scary to get that call, but I'm glad to hear the charge exited where it did before it went any further.

          Probably hurts like hell and he has a copper taste in his mouth...

          Welcome to the forum from TN. As a Pegas Distributor, Pegas has the Super Skip blades which works perfectly with acrylics at a reduced speed.

          Welcome to the group. I look forward to seeing more of your work. You will probably need to slow down you scroll saw when cutting the urethane on the scroll saw. If the blade gets to hot it will fuse back together.
          I have used the house trim board material which I think is PVC. Where do you purchase...

          thanks for the kind words - I'm not really a scroller "enthusiast", per se. I like to make dimensional signs and have always used the band saw, routers, or Roto-Zip to cut the elements out then do some handcarving to perk them up a bit. I'll put some of my projects in my folder later on....
