No matter how hard I try to beat the habit, I find myself in the shop once again making band saw boxes.
These boxes are patterned after a Revolution kite. Revolution kites are probably one of the most popular kites in the world, are a blast to fly and have an unbelievable fan base. I know, some of you are saying … WHAT ???? So here is a link to a YouTube video that will give you an idea of what these amazing kites are and what they can do.
Back to the boxes …. These boxes are purple heart & maple and tigerwood & maple. The inside of the drawers are all flocked with fibers from flockit.com. Do not be afraid to try your hand at flocking. It is very easy and the results are amazing. The boxes are sanded from 80 through 400 grit, wiped with a damp rag to raise the grain and sanded again with 400 grit. Finished with 3 coats of Watco Danish Oil, buffed with 0000 steel wool and 3 coats of Minwax furniture wax.
The last two photos are a box I made for my wife. I overheard her talking to someone about one of the boxes I made saying I never made one for her. Sooooo, I had to correct that error.
If you have any suggestions on how I can tighten up the kerf lines between the case and the drawers, I would love to hear them.
That’s all for now. I have boxes to make and kites to fly.
