I saw an article like this by Carole Rothman in the Scroll Saw Magazine, but it looked too difficult for me. Congratulations on doing an outstanding job and on so many boxes.

Nice job and when I think how hard it is to work purple heart, it’s even more impressive.

Very nice! I actually just took a short break from sanding the ribbon tails on the jewelry box I am making for my fiancé as a wedding present. The wedding is next month, so I’ll be posting the project soon. Your ribbons look great! I don’t have a spindle sander yet, so I’ve been shaping the rough-cut (scroll sawn) pieces with a dremel sanding drum. I will not make another one of these until I have at least a spindle sander to make it easier and more consistent. What is your method?

Hi MHarper90I was using a small spindle sander in my drill press along with my belt sander mounted in a cradle. I just bought a Porter Cable belt/disc sander to help out, but the belt sander does the bulk of the work.

Have you tried the sandpaper that you can get for your scrollsaw? I bet it would work great. Nice boxes

Hi, I am Glen’s wife. First I agree the boxes you made are gorgeous & make great gifts, love the contrast of woods. Those of us who receive hand made gifts are very lucky & know how much time & love you all put into them.
Glen is not very active on Lumberjocks, he had to rebuild his shop after Sandy Storm, needs to build doors, lay wooden floor & maybe add a new heating system. Like all of you he is putting in long hours to design & make new pieces.He is working on new pieces for his Oct show & also working on commissions.
Do you all suggest this book as a good gift? Glen is took the day off to go rock climbing in the Gunks so I borrowed his login. I am going to Barnes & Noble tomorrow & can pick the book.
Have a great weekend,Marie
