Enjoyed a book about seashells and had a complete lion’s paw shell. Wanted to try creating a shadow box with moulding profiles created only on the table saw.

This is a very nice box. It showcases the sea shells nicely.

Scott:

Thank you for the comment. The fun here was using a 3/4” x 1-1/2” board to create concave and convex shapes in the profile while using only a table saw and saw blade. To trick the viewer into believing I used 2” thick wood when it was only 3/4” thick stock I used compound miters on the frame pieces.

Very clever and with limited tools no doubt! Good job and nice selection of wood. Post more Pics if possible.

I had to come back and take as second look at this because I felt I missed something in my cursory examination yesterday. I missed some of the subtle details on this one. Thanks for pointing them out.

If you do something like this again I feel it would make an interesting blog to detail the construction process.

This is nice. Your explanation helps, too. As Scott says, there’s more there than meets the eye in a cursory glance.

Have your say...
