I’m fortunate to have a steady supply of free wood for small projects so I tried my hand at the ribbon box. I made a shop jig to cut the splines in the mitered corners…can’t have enough shop jigs around! The ribbon handle was the hardest part of the project….I don’t yet own a bandsaw so the cutout was done on a scroll saw with lots of sanding afterwards. I had no idea what my wife might want to do with this so I flocked the inside just in case she might put some jewelry in it.
I like small projects like this…..they don’t break the bank and it’s a great way to use up all those small scraps we like to keep in our workshops.
