  • 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 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.

              I have the Pegas replacement table for my EX21. It was the best investment that I made. The best part is they eliminated the useless vacuum holes and reduced the size of the blade hole as well. Another benefit was the table stiffened the EX21 frame eliminating much of resonant vibration. It is a much...

              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.
