I was looking for a project to do with my 6 year old son on Saturday, I remember Steve Ramsey from Woodworking for Mere Mortals made some boxes form some scrap wood, so I decided to do that. the boxes are made from mostly pine wood, I used some wood I reclaimed some wood from an entertainment center that my loves to hate. I mostly used my table saw to make these the round overs were done with my router and my belt-sander. if you are looking for a quick project to do, or you are looking for a gift for that special someone in in your life give this project a shot.

FYI, it’s Steve Ramsey and he lives in Marin County or Marin City in California. Those look good. I always like a good box and Steve is definitely a proponent of boxes. I crack up every time he talks about woodworking is really just about making boxes and using them for different purposes. Really entertaining.

Nice boxes and I really like the idea of used woods.

Can anyone tell me more about Steve Ramsey and if he has any Youtube or DVDs

I hope those are a little better, my phone took better pictures at one time but then there was the superglue incident the pictures on my phone have been cloudy ever since, but it is nice to have when I don’t have my camera handy

Steve is on Youtube,Facebook, Google plus, and he has a webpage. Just checkout Woodworking for Mere Mortals on youtube to see his videos, let post the link to the videos here hope that helps there Arlin, Steve is a great guy with some good woodworking tips, and he is very weird and funny, but I believe that you have to be to be a woodworker because if you don’t like have fun in what you what is the point to it all.

Oh by the way I know the other box wasn’t on there before because, I just made it today in under 30 mins or it’s free. That was the first time I did a bit carving, not the best I think but I wanted the box to stand out a little. The Motive on the box is a Tudor Rose or that’s was what I was going for at least, even though it turned out to be a abstract rose( meaning it doesn’t look any thing like what the rose looks like) I learned that trick from Picasso, ever wondered why his stuff was weird, He started out wanting to paint a person, messed up and instead of trowing away the painting he called it abstract, see that works in woodworking as well, and there are some places(like Ashland,Eugene, and Portland) in Oregon where I live I could pass that story off and people would believe me.

Have your say...
