2 days ago by WildWoodMan | 0 comments »

I found this piece of root in the woods, I am not sure what type of wood, but it looks like it may have been from a bush (Yew?), that have been cut an discarded. I put my 35yr old cowboy hat to show where/ size.It is not really heavy, as it would be bulky try to carry about 5 blocks up hill.

Celtic NOT - a journey

949 days ago by BritBoxmaker | 19 comments »

This is the blog of how I built Celtic NOT. The design is one of a recent series of overlapping circle designs. Originally there were two possible patterns These are the original paper models. As you can see the more complicated of the two had an interwoven line on the sides of the box as well. I eventually decided this pattern looked a bit too busy and opted for the simpler of the two. The box was going to be Oak with Sycamore and Walnut stringing. I initially tried making t...

Segmented Woodturning: "to boldly go...."

1222 days ago by poopiekat | 9 comments »

I have been studying segmented turning for a while. I have lots of small pieces of exotic lumber, a really good lathe, and seeking some out-of-the-ordinary projects less frequently seen. It was some You-Tube videos, a 90 yr old turner in North Carolina, who really made me conclude that this was something I could be doing! And so it began, two blocks of 10/4 maple, with a purpleheart filler. Next, some laminated beech, cherry and maple, and a pedestal made of salvaged yew from a neighbors t...

Atom #1: is coming

1343 days ago by BritBoxmaker | 16 comments »

Hello all. A little while back someone came up with a box that was 2 cubic inches in size. I looked up my old ‘Little Bess Ring box’ posting and found that to be approaching 3 cubic inches. Now there’s a challenge I thought. So was born the idea for Atom, a 1 cubic inch box. Here is the paper model--Its full size at 24mm on a side (just under 1”). It will have 2mm (5/64”) thick walls. The lid will be drop on. Now there is a tiny box. Here is a pic of my pro...

Bandsaw boxes #2: Tiger Tiger

1573 days ago by BritBoxmaker | 11 comments »

Outside my comfort zone again. This is my second experiment with the bandsaw and patterns. Materials are Yew and Ebony. The patterns are about 50×120mm and 7mm thick. 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 ...

Bandsaw boxes #1: The Eyes Have It

1584 days ago 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...
