Making a Red Star for the Red Star Kim box

05-04-2010 05:45 PM by BritBoxmaker | 16 comments »

This was a challenging commission from a very dear friend. Make a box containing her Red Star.Well the starting point was a mozaic she has hanging at her home, conveniently posted on her Facebook page (I do love the net, everything at you fingertips). I decided to base the design around the large, black bordered, star in the top left. The design was accepted so here I went. The first question I asked myself was – How to do it? The clue was in the mozaic and heres how I did it. P...

David Marks Piano Bench

04-28-2010 06:31 AM by AKWoody | 5 comments »

So this is my first real project. I have spent months practicing mortising and cutting tenons and ruining cheap wood before I attempted anything expensive. So far it is turning out better then expected. My future brother in law plays the piano from a kitchen chair making this an ideal wedding gift. I used cherry with ebony accents, I am hoping the finish turns out well.

Bandsaw boxes #2: Tiger Tiger

04-07-2010 03:47 PM by BritBoxmaker | 11 comments »

They’re more like Tiger and Anti-Tiger as one is obviously the negative of the other. Can’t make my mind up whether to make two individual boxes or slap them together lengthways to make one long pattern for something like a pencil box. Front sideBack sideSide by side Or I could slice them through ...

Black and White Dots inc. Basic Mitred Box

04-01-2010 07:39 PM by BritBoxmaker | 23 comments »

This is an earlier project of mine that also neatly shows one of the simpler box making techniques I use, that of the mitred box with drop-on lid. First we see the basic components: On the left are the four sides, each with a 3mm slot routed in near the bottom to hold the base. The base is bottom right and is two layers of 1.5mm birch aeroply. The top is the last piece, top right. This particular one is a three layer sandwich; 3mm design, 3mm ply and 3mm maple (this bottom 3mm will loc...

Bandsaw boxes #1: The Eyes Have It

03-27-2010 10:51 PM by BritBoxmaker | 7 comments »

Inspired by the work of Patron I have recently rescued my bandsaw from its dusty corner of the workshop and have produced this pattern. I intend to use it as a box top but might just frame it and hang it on a wall as a picture. I think it looks like a pair of eyes, hence the title. Heres how its made 1. Take four square slices of timber; Ebony, Purpleheart, Yew and Sycamore of identical size. 2. Tape them together with double sided tape. 3. Cut your pattern. 4. Mix and match to create a...
