Ongoing Jewelry Box - Interior Dividers and Trays

2056 days ago by Greg3G | 4 comments »

The input was for the most part was to use Wenge for the interior. So….here it is. Please keep in mind I have not decided on a finish yet. I am leaning towards a Danish Oil type of blend. Trays in the box Trays removed Trays made of Wenge and Ambrosia Maple. Bottom of the trays, showing off the Ambrosia Maple. Please pardon the photography…I’m not great at it. Should have used a tripod.

Watch Box #5: Hinges, Handle, Dividers

936 days ago by Andy | 11 comments »

After glueing in the medallion, I went ahead and sanded it flush with the lid. I did this to be sure it looked ok. I was worried about chipped out areas below the rim showing up after the sanding and it would be much easier to replace the panel at this stage before the entire box was shaped. It would make aligning the jig for recutting the recess less of a nightmare. But it looked fine. The handle is a piece of cut off from the Maple medallion. I simply slotted a mortise in it and the lid ...

Handcut Dovetail Jewelry Box

651 days ago by WoodJediNTraining | 15 comments »

This week I share with you a decorative box which features hand cut dovetail joints. This box is made of Mahogany and Pecan and its center piece being a Spalted Pecan Panel Lid. I am no authority on dovetails joints so I don’t go into a lot of detail on making hand cut dovetail joints. There are a lot of training videos and materials out there to reference off of. I used some of the pecan Which I had milled from free logs delivered to me by a tree service. When I re sawe...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #260: What an Incredible Day!

1251 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

After yesterday’s rocky start, you would think that the day was going to be heading in a downhill direction. Not so, I say! The little hiccup here at LJ’s came and went so quickly that most people probably didn’t even notice it. With nearly 25,000 accounts to maintain here, I think that they do an outstanding job. In thinking about it and adding up the numbers, just think of all the pictures, projects and comments that all 25,000 of us post in a single day. It is simp...

TWO-COLOR CONCEPT #2: Hexagonal Box - Part 2

622 days ago by BertFlores58 | 3 comments »

For the second time that I have to continue the making of hexabox under the two tone concept. The first part ended in the mitering using a 45 degree chamfering bit by router manually. STEP 4. The Assembly After routing and ready for assemble.. Notice the gap caused by using the 45 degree instead of the 60 degree.. I need to caulk it with 30 degree wedges. The priority is the sides have to be erected perpendicular and insert the caulking pieces so I have to make glue the bottom ...

Kamagong (Ebony) jewelry box

1283 days ago by Bill Davis | 11 comments »

Doing some resawing. The basic box. About a week ago my dentist, Bam, said he had a piece of old Kamagong for me. Well that made the pain in the dentist chair more tolerable (actually it was only a routine cleaning). It was a pretty scrungy looking board about 30” x 18” with nail holes (including a couple of nails) and a fair share of splits. I could see some nice grain buried in there though it would have to be brought out where it was more obvious. Also someone had ‘...

New Jewelry box in the works...and I want your input.

2061 days ago by Greg3G | 13 comments »

Ok fellow LJ’ers. I am working on a new jewelry box and I would like your input on what wood to use on the interior for the dividers and trays. The box is made with Lacewood, with Padauk and Wenge stripes and accents. The box does not have a finish on it yet (just FYI, I am planning on using a gloss poly and then rubbing out back down to a semi-gloss.) Here is what I currently have in stock. Curly MapleLace wooda very little bit of Sapele WalnutWengeAmbrosia Map...

Adventures of a Novice Woodworker #1: Woodworking 101

2128 days ago by Jeff Kochosky | 7 comments »

I consider myself to be a true novice when it comes to woodworking. My current “workroom” (actually the garage, minus my wife’s car) consists of a 10” contractor’s saw, and a 10” compound miter saw. I know that there’s a few more pieces that I need/want before I can start really being productive, and I’ve heard rumors that there’s at least a router in my near future… As the first step in my journey into the world of woodworking, I...
