Now that Christmas is here I can post pictures of the Tooth Band Saw Box I made. Our Son In Law is a Dentist so I decided to make a tooth band saw box for him as a Christmas present. The tooth is made from a block of Maple which was originally a turning block. I attached a tooth template to the block then cut the tooth out on a band saw. I then removed the top 3/4” of the tooth on the band saw, making two pieces. The scoop in the lower block was made by marking the circle then removing a majority of the material with a Forstner bit. I then used two sided tape to tape a circle template to the top of the lower block then used a router with a bushing to remove the remaining material and clean up the scoop. The top pivots on a small metal rod inserted from the bottom. After flocking the scoop, I used a Fostner bit and Dremel tool to remove a portion of the top, making a cavity. My wife then taped the edge of the cavity with blue painters tape and mixed up some silver Inlace to fill the cavity. When the Inlace set, I rounded over the edges then drilled both the top and bottom for a 1/4” rare earth magnet to hold the lid on. Lastly, everything was sanded and several layers of finish were applied.

Very nice! How appropriate for a dentist.
What is the “silver inlace” you used to fill the ‘cavity’? I am not familiar with that and I have a project on my shelf that could benefit from a little something to fill an unexpected “cavity”.

Rick, Inlace is an acrylic resin type of material use in turning to fill voids. It comes in colors, clear or in a dye form to add to the clear.

Very cool, I have been thinking about making a tooth box for the tooth fairy. This is great idea only a lot smaller, thanks for inspiration.

Have your say...
