Paint box for my daughters artist area.

Paint boxfor my daughters artist area This Christmas I gave my daughter a easel, she had a specific wish and so I decided that where I could bring her some of me, was in making her a box for all the paint gear. She is quite dedicated, spend many hours in her room painting with a deep focus and in a meditative state of mind.Nothing less than wonderful. I have made her a jewel box at a ealier time and as some of you know I have a soft spot for the Japanese crafts, so I went in that di...

Kitchen Utensil Box #5: Assembling the final product

01-18-2016 06:43 AM by JSOvens | 0 comments »

Here it comes at last! The final steps in this project. With the shaping out of the way, I decided to work on the finish next. I figured it would be easier to pre-finish the individual pieces before gluing them together. I have to apologize because I don’t have any photos of the finishing process, or of the individual finished pieces, but the finished project will be shown below. Because Wenge is a fairly “texturous” wood, I wanted to preserve its feel, rather than encase...

Kitchen Utensil Box #4: Shaping the corner posts

12-29-2015 08:22 AM by JSOvens | 0 comments »

Well, after many months of hiatus from this project, I managed to get back on the horse. Looking at the May 30th time stamp of the last post, I realized that this is right before My convocation (graduation) ceremony at my university – so you can officially feel free to call me Dr. Ovens! This of course led to several months of job hunting, the success of which is still to be determined. In any case, the last update showed the joinery I used to couple the Padauk corner posts with the ...

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...
