Hello to all, my first post
To hone my skills and learn new ones, I make boxes as a means of experimentation.
I’ve made about 40 boxes so far (and other things) and I have not made the same box twice as of yet. My goal is always to try new things and techniques. This sometimes leads to having to change gears and make on-the-fly adjustments.
Here is one of my latest and the first time I’ve tried to have the hinge on the inside:
The biggest error I made was using two rare-earth magnets for the lid. This made for a lid that was VERY difficult to open, so I had to subsititute a washer for the top magnet. I’ll later replace this with a metal slug.
another item to share. I love picking up these black-walnut burl blocks. Here’s one I’ve cleaned up and I have already cut it up on a project (I’ll post that later).
This type of burl is so beautiful I am compelled to just put some tung oil on it and put it on a shelf!!
thanks for looking
