  • Spanish Ceder Box

    Not wanting to high jack the post on Spanish Ceder, I wanted to show a box I made from Spanish Ceder. It is the Gentleman's box by John Nelson.
    Our Woodworkers club had a workshop building potting benches from Spanish Ceder. I received a bunch of scraps including 1/4" panels. that is what I used for this box. finished with a 50/50 mix of boiled linseed oil and mineral spirits, with a top coat of Deft semi gloss spray Lacquer.
    Just wanting to show that this wood defiantly is a great wood to use for scrolling!

    I agree with you Dan. Its a softer hardwood. Cuts and finishes beautifully. And the smell when you cut is pleasant.
    Your box looks great!

      beautiful job on that box. I agree with you Spanish cedar is a joy to work with one of my favorites. I just don't like the bitter taste it leaves in my mouth. I always wear a mask when cutting it.

              That's what I was wondering Betty: If these would work (larger) for hair?

              The perfect solution when I need a wider top on my Hegner. A magnetic sheet! I decided not to get the Pegas as the only reason was for the wider top and the top feed blade. After 19 years, my Hegner is still running like new and I couldn’t justify the expense. It was a “want” and not a “need”....

              Good idea Scott. Also, my daughter has long, curly hair. She twists it up and around and sticks a pencil in to hold it. I also stick a dowel in my hair when working and my hair gets in my way and I twist it up. The one in this picture would perfect for thick hair.
