  • My version of the domed lid box

    This is my version of Scrollsaw Woodworking's Domed Lid Box. I glued up red oak and poplar instead of using one thick piece of maple and I made a little knob using the pattern for the pawn in Steve Good's 3D chess set. The lid isn't very domed, but I made some designer firewood the first time I tried, so I left it mostly flat with rounded edges the second time around. Finished with Krylon clear satin.

              I use Krylon clear satin on nearly everything. It dries in a few minutes and seems to be pretty durable.

                That's a nice job with some very artistic touches. It's on my cut list for this week and I planned to dome the top of the lid before cutting the frets instead of afterwards. As long as I keep the bottom flat, I don't expect to have any problems with the internal bevels as I cut the frets.

                    Great job. I thought about using the different wood , but didn't have any on hand and wanted to get it started. I kinda short on patience.

                      I often resize just to fit the size of the wood I have on hand. I agree this is a no win situation because of the various software, hardware differences plus the skill level of us, the end users. Even providing the patterns in a digitized format will no fix this because of the reasons I already mentioned....

                      John your original post is a valid question. It is a simple thing to put in the original scale assuming that it was on the original drawing. As a minimum the size of the material required can be stated, although that has been a confusion for folks that have built the clock projects. I field a lot of...

                      Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

                      I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

                      This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

                      I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

                      Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

                      How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...
