Snakes Pattern in Solid Wood #4: The Union of the Snake

1515 days ago by BritBoxmaker | 16 comments »

Well part of it anyway. A new set of eight clamping sticks, waxed this time and polished. Major squeeky bum (ass) time. Glue in a dish. Brush at the ready. Quick slurp of tea and there off…...........Pick up the piece, slap on the glue, position it in the frame. Repeat until you’re sure you’ve done something wrong. Put it right. Continue…...... After 20 minutes—->The glue was probably OK for another two rows but I bottled it (chickened out). Wasn’t used to ...

A personal challenge - The make #2: Day 2

1541 days ago by BritBoxmaker | 10 comments »

Hello again. Day two of the challenge. I decided to measure up everything and arrange it before me to see what materials I have to make this box.It didn’t take long to decide on a four sided box. I will make it vertically grained as this is where I have most length in the flitches and I’ll loose at least 2mm height when I seperate the box halves, top from bottom . Another piece will be the bottom of the box and the last will be the lipping for the inside, this will locate the top...
