This is a Small box I made for my new Grand daughter Caitlin.
I was out visiting Lazy Larry’s wood work shop and had it with me, Larry suggested I post it so here it is.
I made it from 3 sections of timber glued together, the joins are under the inlay.
Its a typical Band saw box. cut the sides off. cut the lid off and then cut the bulk out.
I sanded the internals with a oscillating spindle sander, however you can again line it or whatever takes your fancy.
Then finalise a hinge arrangement and sand slightly the sides of the lid so you can get it open again! then glue the sides back on.
Add the inlay or whatever decoration you desire, sand to finish. I sanded it from 120 to 1200 Grit then finished the surface with danish oil.
Paulownia is a Chinese origin timber introduced to attempt to replace the de forresting of areas in a short time.
It is grown in plantations around NSW (AUST) in the Byron Bay Kyogle areas that I know of.
P.S. If you are in Brisbane QLD and can make it to Lazy Larry’s Shop in Caboolture he has some really nice timbers which he is conducting a clearance sale for. ( you may know him as “degoose” a very odd name as I didn’t see any geese about when I was there.
P.P.S Don’t forget the Brisbane QLD Wood exhibition is on this weekend 18, 19 and 20 of May.
