Claro Walnut Box #1: Chipout on top corner

12-06-2016 12:53 PM by HorizontalMike | 11 comments »

While trying to size my box, I got a chip-out on the front corner of the lid when I tried to use my jointer to square up the top before mounting. The jointer ate most of the chip, and I only found a small part the was glue-up fixable. My guess is that Claro Walnut, having grain direction all over the place, seems to be VERY susceptible to tear-out/chip-out. Questions: How best to to fix this? Wood putty? How best to round over finger joints and top? 1. Router? 2...

Scofield Study Bible Box Christmas Gift #2: Preparing The Stock

11-29-2016 03:13 PM by Zabinsky | 1 comment »

Since I just so happen to have the exact bible on hand that I plan to give, I took some quick measurements and estimated the box size. The final dimensions should be 10” long by 7” wide and 2 3/4” tall. I started out by cutting down the lumber to approximately 11” strips and ripped them to 3” long. The picture in the previous posting was what I started with and the picture below is the near end result of the pieces. My planer has brand new blades in it and ...

Scofield Study Bible Box Christmas Gift #1: Starting Out

11-29-2016 02:47 PM by Zabinsky | 1 comment »

Being my first project on here and my woodworking skills are rather limited, bare with me as I post bits and pieces and try to make sense of it for you all. Christmas is coming upon us quickly and as usual, I am in a rush to figure out gifts for the family. Being a holiday that society forgot the real meaning of… my wife and I decided to give the family a Scofield Study Bible to help reinstate the true purpose of the day. Of course, no worthy book is complete without a proper cont...

Covering the bottom of a box

11-22-2016 12:42 AM by DonSol | 5 comments »

This is in response to the method Boxguy uses and described in one of his project post. I told him I would post a blog showing the method I use now. Years ago I used the same method he does but this is so much easier, less messy and quicker. So here goes and I hope he likes it. I use picture mat board that I get from the Art Center here in town. Cut a piece about 1/16” smaller than the opening. If I have an odd shape box I will cover the opening with masking tape, cut aroun...

Basketweave Box w/White Roses #2: Now for the leaves and butterfly

10-11-2016 12:31 AM by DonSol | 2 comments »

In this part I am cutting in the leaves, then I will get into the butterfly. I didn’t have a pattern for the complete picture on paper, the picture was in my head. I drew in the branches w/thorns and using the window method cut and laid them in to the weave (carefully). Window for half of one done. Moving along. Working on the last leaf. That one is done. Now the odds and ends pieces of the leaves and on to the butterfly. One thing I should ha...

Basketweave Box w/Roses #2: Part 3 Using the window method

10-10-2016 12:34 AM by DonSol | 5 comments »

In the following drawing the book “The Marquetry Manual” by William A. Lincoln tells you the window method is done by starting with the farthest piece in the background. This would be #1 in the top drawing. Instead of following the lines in the drawing drawing when you come to an adjoining piece you over cut (dotted lines) into the adjoining piece. Put glue all the way around it, with a tooth pic, I put my glue in aplastic coffee can lid. Wait for the glue to dry then draw or t...

Basketweave Box w/Roses #1: Part 2 Assembling the basketweave

10-09-2016 12:04 AM by DonSol | 7 comments »

I had never done a basketweave before so this is the process I came up with. At first it was one of those trial and error things, I’m sure we have all done this. I covered the inside and outside so I had to have 10 panels. A time consuming process, but I would do it again. In this picture I am shading both ends of the pieces. I do enough to make 2 or 3 rows. I put 5 or 6 pieces in and by the time I get the last one in the sand the first one is ready to be turned or taken o...

Basketweave Box w/White Roses #1: #1 Making the basketweave pieces

10-07-2016 11:30 PM by DonSol | 2 comments »

About a year and a half ago I got a picture in my head of a box with basketweave, white roses and a tiger swallowtail. After a few days sketching and different ideas I came up with a design. This blog will show how I did the marquetry for this box. I did not take pictures while building the box, the marquetry was my main priority. I wanted it to look like something that was made to be used, not fancy, utilitarian, etc. The white oak for the box frame came out of a 100+ year old barn co...

Custom Camera Box

10-02-2016 05:25 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

My filming stuff has been laying all over. Batteries in one box, camera in another, tripod somewhere else. I figured it was time to make a box to hold all my stuff. I was able to cut everything on my Ridgid bandsaw and then cut all the rabbets and dadoes on my router table. Very simple yet strong construction. Click here to view on YouTube.
