This is my second flag box to make as the first one sold, I used Walnut to resemble the blue, mahognay to resemble the red, spalted hackberry to resemble the white and spalted hackberry for the inlayed star I used my scroll saw for the inlay, it has 7 drawers with one hidden making 8 drawers, two of the large drawers also have partitions. it measures 8” H x 11” W x 3” D

Thanks for viewing

That is one real neat box. Great planning on the color scheme. For the inlay, did you cut them together at an angle or separately and fit the star in?

Very impressive – love the mixed woods!

It would have been FAR easier to simply slap some paint on this – the effort you put into this is FAR better!

Very nice! A glue-up of smaller boxes. That’s a great way to get around the limitations on the size of the band saw. I will have to try a project like this. Thank you for sharing.

Jim, I first cut the star out by spray glueing a pre drawn star over the wood using scroll saw, I then used the face plate with the star cut already as a templete to cut the star from the hackberry, penciled inside the star onto the hackberry then used the bandsaw to cut the star, I then fit and glued it in with wood glue, to fill in the voids I made a paste using wood glue on wax paper with walnut sawdust mixed together and filled in the voids/cracks.

Bob yep that’d been way to easy :) only I’d went with paint grade popular for paint. Myself I just can’t see covering up nice grade wood with of diferent color. Thanks

Thanks all for comments.

Art no actually I glued all pieces together first, it fit just fine with room to spare between the back support and the blade via turn radious of course I had to move the fence out of the way :) but you’re right if it had been something of larger size. :)

I like that allot Blackie….I can tell you are having a ball making these boxes as I am. The largest problem I have making these is finding the needed wood. There isn’t nearly the amount of wood here in the Islands as on the Mainland. That is why I use so much Koa, Mango and Monkey Pod, it’s grown here. Thanks for sharing your designs

Larry, not a finger hole, just a knot in the wood. :)
