Hi everyone,

It’s been many days without posting a project. This time I’m glad to share a easy project about making little boxes, for rings or earrings. The only power machine you need to done this quickly is a table saw (with a mither jig) or miter saw. I hope you enjoy it and please comment your thoughts.

As always, I leave here the video of making process of this project.

Regards from Barcelona!

PS: If you’re wondering what ring is the end of the video … it was made from Purple Heart and Beech shavings. I’ve some projects to show this technique:

Nice project and video.
We have the same table saw, I was wondering what you are using for runners on your mitre sled?

I use a dimensioned strips of steamed beech (more stable) with some wax to make it run smoothly.

How thick are the runners? 3-4mm?
I haven’t tried making a sled with runners for the so called miter slots on this saw, I built a large one that fits over the whole saw. It’s a bit big and heavy for small projects like a ring box.

I’ll give you the measurements when I come back home after work. I need to make a small cross-cut sled too.

Nice project. Wish I could learn your sanding technique. Just can’t quite seem to go that fast! ;-)
