Saw a box like this last week that Lenny posted on LJs last week, and I had to try it for my self. Really interesting going from boards to bow tie. Lenny has a reference to the magazine w/the plans on his post, and if I could figure it out I would too. Any how, I drew up the bows and they came out well, but the inside curves were too small to get a tool into to sand…. even the dremel wouldn’t do it. Considering redesigning with a larger inside curve, and making them less beefy.
Box measures about 7×7 x 3 made out of poplar, maple for the top, and curly maple/ padauk for the ribbon.
