  • First Box

    This tulip box pattern is by Janice Manuel out of the Aug 2011 other mag. You can put potpourri in it.

    The pattern called for butt in joints but I like miter joints better. Also it called for 1/4" and I made it out of 3/8" walnut.

    This is my first try at a box, you sure learn alot by doing
    First picture isn't very clear, didn't notice until I uploaded it, lol

    Wow, what a beautiful box!!! You wouldn't think this was your first...and I hear ya about what you learn when you are doing it...sometimes the mags make it look way easy...NOT! Did you stack cut the sides, or cut them individually? Ya gotta luv Walnut, it is a dream to work with...one of my favs.

          Thanks for all of your input. I did stack cut the sides two at a time. I was very happy how the corners turned out for my first time making miters.

              He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

              Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

              I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...

              You are one busy lady. About how long does it take to cut one?
