Small Box Experiments

06-13-2014 03:34 PM by Marty Backe | 8 comments »

Here’s a video that showcases a few diminutive boxes that I made from 1/8” thick stock. Some were experiments with hand cut dovetails in plywood and MDF. http://youtu.be/bC5nfZqkcc0

Plane Restorations #1: Stanley No. 45 Boxes Reproduction Graphics

10-09-2012 01:57 AM by grfrazee | 7 comments »

I bought a No. 45, but the cutters did not come with the boxes that were included at the original purchase, all those decades ago. Not wanting to spend a large amount of money for real boxes, I’ve opted to make my own reproductions. However, I wanted them to be as close to the original versions as possible. The astute reader will note that the No. 45 cutter boxes had graphics on them displaying the contents of each box. These tend to get destroyed over time and are very rare to be...

Oh My Gosh!

07-03-2009 04:27 PM by chickenhelmet | 7 comments »

Well it’s been a while since I’ve had the time to jump on the site. Some of you know that, after being unemployed for several months, I started a business. Wow! Colorado Record Crates is doing well. I posted pictures of the 12” LP crate in my projects not too long ago and many of you liked it, with only good things to say. What I didn’t realize is they would be wildly popular! That being said, I went to retail with no back stock at all. I really thought I’d put t...

Project - Lever-Action Boxes #2: Milling the lumber

10-21-2007 12:55 PM by Dekker | 7 comments »

So I have started on my box project! I had originally wanted to start with a similar design as Douglas’s box (see his project), however I wanted something even easier to start back into woodworking with. So I chose this simple design, featuring a flush lid that is opened by a bit of lever action when an end is pressed down. Of course, all good things start with a plan… Since I no longer had access to any cutlist software, and since this is a simple 6-sided box, I tried a f...

"After-Effects of Snow...." --by RusticWoodArt

12-04-2007 01:40 PM by frank | 6 comments »

After-Effects of Snow…. ....what can I add that these picture do not show-tell-speak forth them-selves….? I knew this one was coming so I had already closed the place up here on the outside, in regards to waiting on an icy breath of winters best. One must understand that it’s not the snow I have a problem dealing with, but the time spent on cleaning up after all the flakes of snow have had their party. So after having spent the day yesterday staying ahead of the storm,...

The Craftsman's Path #16: Twin boxes in Cherry, Maple and Walnut

11-19-2007 06:02 PM by Mark Mazzo | 6 comments »

Not nearly as much time in the shop as I would like lately. I did however, get a bit of time in between other things for a small project. I did two twin boxes with some offcuts. Take a look at the post on my blog for details. Thanks for reading!

Project - Chunky Boxes #1: Milling the Lumber

10-26-2007 12:38 PM by Dekker | 4 comments »

While my other boxes are receiving their final finishes, I have decided to start on another pair of boxes. The design is based on something I saw in a book, but I can not remember which at this moment. They are short (probably only 1-1/4” tall) and not very long (about 3-1/2”) with a slab lid that is removed with the use of a finger-hole on the side wall of the carcase. The nice thing about the design is its frugality: It only takes one piece of wood 17” long and 1-1/4...

Decorative Boxes #1: Looking for box maker member

10-17-2012 06:50 PM by mroe | 4 comments »

Folks,Last year, or earlier this year I found one of the member’s websites, who builds incredible decorative unique boxes. In particular, his boxes featured carved lids, simulating multiple waves carved into the lid. Does this ring a bell with anyone? I’m trying to relocate this artist and see his boxes again. Thanks for your help.Mark
