Originals #1: Cupcake Box

11-10-2015 12:36 AM by Sioranth | 0 comments »

So, I’m having a bit of woodworking ADD lately while trying to work on holiday gifts. I have a million things to do so of course I’m procrastinating. I decided to attempt making my own pattern and went with a simple cupcake box. I’ve seen the ones that are round and look like actual cupcakes, but I wanted mine to be a flat box with a sort of intarsia top. I drew up the pattern in Inkscape and started cutting. The box is being glued at the moment so I’ll cut it tomorrow...

Hints and Tips #16: Flattening a Box

11-07-2015 02:46 AM by Dave Rutan | 6 comments »

I’ve been making a few boxes lately and have at least one more to go. I saw this technique for fine tuning the bottom or top edges of a box on a YouTube video about guitar making. In the video the luthier had a large sheet of sandpaper glued to a piece of plywood. After creating the sides of the guitar body, he would rub the edges of the body (sans bottom or top) on the sandpaper to even out the edges completely. Since my joinery is far from perfect, I’ve been using this m...

Episode 3 - Hydro-Painting Finish

10-12-2015 07:07 AM by Mike | 2 comments »

Hi All; This week I was very busy so I didn’t have time for a more traditional project video. I did want to try a new finishing technique I had come across called Hydro-Painting. It involves spray paint and a bucket of water. The resulting box is from one of my first attempts. Take a look and let me know what you think. Thanks, Mike View on YouTube

Stanley 45 box #1: The Prologue

10-04-2015 09:04 PM by Mitch Peacock | 2 comments »

My Stanley 45 had lost it’s home when I acquired it. A sad but frequent story. I planned to rectify this when I had the opportunity, and recent events brought that closer. As far as I can determine, my 45 would have originally been supplied in a simple pine box with a sliding lid. Of course, any number of more sophisticated alternatives have been built by owners, and so my first task was to decide on my design. Out of the blue, I stumbled upon an old chest of drawers that had been...

Making a Rice Krispies Treats storage container

09-02-2015 02:54 PM by Marty Backe | 2 comments »

I allow myself to indulge in eating Rice Krispies Treats every once in awhile. I decided that one of my favorite snacks needed a better box to store them. The container was made with a combination of power tools and hand tools, and was assembled with only cut nails (no glue). The wood was a ‘white wood’ cutoff from the big box store. It was a fun build – hope you like it.
