« Part 3: Inlay veneer dilema Part 4 of Box Making series Part 5: EGB Jewellery box Opps Fixed »

I had a request from No 2 Son to replicate the Box I made for his first daughter Caitlin
Seems younger sister Emily spotted it and requested the same,

I didn’t keep any records on how I did it and asked if I could get it back to copy it, this proved to be impossible due to the aproaching Birthday.

So I set to work, working off a few pictures I took before.

I was making great progress until I put the lid on.

There seemed to be a problen with the grain.

Wondering if I had assembled it incorrectly I reversed the lid, that was worse!

So I “fiddled about” and discovered I had the sides reversed L and R

One side matched

The other side matched

This occured even after I had everything marked and layed out as well!

Oh well thats getting old for you!! and I thought I was making such great progress too!! at least I know what I will be doing first up tomorrow.

-- Regards Robert

Sometimes the beautiful grain just fools all of us!
