how it's made: wood inlay boxes - 15 replies
Found a great “How it’s Made” video showing some ornate inlay boxes (second item showcased in the episode): http://www.megavideo.com/?v=LJH0V062 These guys sure crank them out… it would take me months to make something like that.

My $25 Dresser Tool Box - 11 replies

After the first coat, I did some light sanding by hand with 220 grit sandpaper on the back of the lid (where some snow had blown onto it while drying outside, making the finish spotty), first in circles, then with the grain, then buffed with 000 steel wool before applyin...

I just completed building a picture frame to fit a painting, but now I’m not sure how to actually mount the painting in the thing. It just has a single rabbet, almost the exact depth of the painting, so it needs some support f...
