  • 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!

      Dan,
      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.

              Thanks for the info Denny. When I cut acrylic I always use a skip tooth blade at a slower speed. I just did not realize that the epoxy would cut the same way as acrylic so I followed the materials list in the article.

              OK folks, picture. I finally figured out how to upload a picture. Here is one each of my version of the oak and cherry boxes. Note the axle peg holding the top in place but allowing it to move.
