In my first installment I showed the steps to cut and prep the stock for the custom keepsake box.This installment shows the steps to glue -up the box and cut the lid.I begin by gluing in the accent strips on all of the box sides. I am using Holly strips that I sized 1/4” wide by 1/8” thick I use CA glue and tap them in place. Once the glue has set up I use a small flex-blade saw to trim the ends flush with the miters. I use a sanding block to sand the strips flush with th...

De-mystifying secret drawers #1: In the beginning...

11-11-2009 04:31 PM by acanthuscarver | 11 comments »

With the publication of my article entitled “It’s a Secret” (click here to read the article online) in the November issue of Popular Woodworking, I started getting lots of email with comments and questions about the subject. Evidently so did the magazine because they started forwarding the emails to me. All had a common theme…”we want more!”. Well, last week I started a series of posts on my blog that will add to the article. This series is going to be o...

I had difficulty designing the sides and back and I’m still not sure if I like the grooved panels. I may go back to just a basic panel or raised. The shelf above the bottom drawer was also a pain, but that could just be because I was a newbie to Sketchup. Please let me know if there is a better, or easier way to build a shelf that sits like that. ...

Their web site is here and is equally as good as the museum. They do an outstanding job of...
