SO THREE DAYS BEFOR SHE HEADS BACK TO SCHOOL MY DAUGHTER TELLS ME SHE NEEDS A JEWLERY BOX. COOL I THOUGHT I JUST MADE A NEW FINGER JOINT JIG FOR THE ROUTER, WITH PLANS GIVEN TO ME BY BRAD. THIS WAS GOING TO BE NY FIRST CHANCE TO USE IT. I USED LOCAL BLACK OAK GIVEN TO ME BY A FRIEND. FINISHED WITH FOUR COATS OF POLY. I ALSO USED THE BLOW IN SUEDE ON THE BOTTOM.

Really great. Your finishes look smooth as glass.

Can I ask a dumb question? What is blow in suede and where can I get it? I am making a couple for the grandaughters and was wondering what to put on the bottom.

That is a very nice, simple, but beautiful box!

I agree with Tom (mot) that your finishes are outstanding!

Donjer makes the blow-in flocking. Available at Woodcraft. Make sure and use at least two coats of the adhesive (matching latex based paint), blowing in the fibers on the last wet coat. Get the cardboard tube system for shooting the nap fibers. I have used it but never posted a box using it because I skimped and used only one coat of the paint, which made the color somewhat uneven.

Great looking box Sarge. Must be nice having friends willing to share their wood with you – you one lucky guy :-)).

Gerald, douglas hit the hammer right on the head. Woodcraft carries it and I believe Rockler does too. easy to use but the stuff goes everywhere.

Sarge, I always put the workpiece in a big ole cardboard box when I shot the flocking. The directions say you can harvest the overspray (odd choice of words here, but technically accurate) and re-use it. I may have to give it another go.

Great looking top, Sarge. I like the bookmatching.
Nice job on the flocking, too. It must have been sorta tricky to get the round surfaces painted and flocked.

God Bless,

Sarge,

This is a beautiful box. You posted it before I came on board but I am glad it came up on my review list. you did a real nice job on the box joints and I like the way you rounded over the edges as well. Thanks for the incentive. My future daughter-in-law has requested one. This definately gives me some ideas.
