  • 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.

                      Understandable for your baskets Betty, but in my experience 1/4” solid wood for puzzles tends to not hold up very well. Especially the small locks....

                      Should read planer Died yesterday. But Bruce got out his instruction book and google and got it apart. Needs new belt, plastic cover and pulley gear. Ordered from eBay and should have by Monday. Of course all work on dough boards stopped. $55 is much cheaper than a new planer. Oh well, on to the next...

                      My customers won’t buy anything cut from plywood. I’ve spoiled them. I use poplar for all my kid puzzles. With Bruce volunteering at the County Park antique sawmill, I have an endless supply of poplar. My current batch is green and white striped. I make cases for all my puzzles and back them with...

                      I have enough of that. I bought 3 sheets of 1/8 and 1/4 a few months back. Bruce was at the sawmill yesterday and the superintendent of the Park told them they were getting over 50 oak trees from various county parks. The trees have sort of bug that is killing them . They will be quarantining them in...
