I found the plans in one of the magazines a couple years ago. I made a couple as gifts. Spray shellac finish.

The bow is out of this world. What types of wood are in it and how did you laminate them? How are the parts of the bow connected? Absolutely beautiful!

Really beautiful I’m sure the recipients were extremely pleased. I too would like to know more about how the ribbon was constructed.

Awesome. We (or at least I) want to know how you made the ribbon or where you got the plans.

Thanks for all the praise on the box. I was going to post how to make the ribbon, but Lenny already has one on this site. I use the same technique. Here is a link to his blog. http://lumberjocks.com/Lenny/blog/35124
Have fun!

Yeah that bow is awesome. It looks like you used several layers of wood compared to other project you linked to. Nice job.

I have seen a lot of these and made a few also, but I have never seen a ribbon look as good. Great job, and congratulations on your daily top three.
