This is the tissue box cover that I made and used my spline jig on. It worked well and the covers turned out nice. They are poplar with walnut splines with a spray coat of shalac. My first time using the spray can shalac and I found it easy to get a run in the finish. So used a light coat to get it o look right. I also used the super glue and sawdust trick and think I like it for unfinished work. The ideal for the cover came from the box whisperer I think ? But whomever made the jig for sanding them and had an elongated hole in top made some of the best tissue covers I’ve ever seen.
Hope you like ! Larry

Larry, nice work. Could you be referring to this posting I did? It features several examples of tissue covers and a sanding mandrel. Of course it could have been some other posting.

Yes it was Boxguy! I’m sorry I gave the credit to box whisperer but it was Box guys covers I found for my inspiration although I didn’t make the sanding jig or the clamping jig either just the box. So I’m grateful for the post and sorry to not have given the rightful person their credit. Larry
