TWO-COLOR CONCEPT #1: TWO TONE HEXAGONAL BOX

11-02-2012 01:53 PM by BertFlores58 | 9 comments »

How can you make variety of design using only two colors? Starting with this question long time ago (maybe a year past), the main reason is to just choose what is available wood that you can say dark and light, black and white, etc…. this has triggered me into designing a TWO TONE Concept. We can start the series by using NARRA parquet (I don’t know if this will run-out, I have still 4 sacks of 2×6 inches old parquet flooring.) and WHITE LAUAN (also from scrap 2×3...

Jigs etc. #3: Simple Circle Cutting Jig for the Routing Table

03-26-2011 05:58 PM by BritBoxmaker | 20 comments »

Hello all. I’m about to make a small box featuring curves. Something I don’t do often. Curves that is, not boxes and it occurred to me to feature the jig I will be using to build it with. Yes I know I’ve recently posted a couple of circle jigs for the bandsaw but there is more than one way to skin a cat and its always useful to have an alternative to call on. This is it Its just a sheet of 6mm Perspex with three slots cut in it and a 6mm pin inserted in a tapped ho...

Bandsaw boxes #1: The Eyes Have It

03-27-2010 10:51 PM by BritBoxmaker | 7 comments »

Inspired by the work of Patron I have recently rescued my bandsaw from its dusty corner of the workshop and have produced this pattern. I intend to use it as a box top but might just frame it and hang it on a wall as a picture. I think it looks like a pair of eyes, hence the title. Heres how its made 1. Take four square slices of timber; Ebony, Purpleheart, Yew and Sycamore of identical size. 2. Tape them together with double sided tape. 3. Cut your pattern. 4. Mix and match to create a...

No Quarter #1: Shell box - Intro and pattern

07-22-2011 08:44 PM by BritBoxmaker | 18 comments »

Hello here this is my second attempt to blog shell boxes. The last one ended up in the wall art ‘Inverted World’. Well this one is a little less spectacular but is based along the same theme of curves. This time a curved pattern but it will have stringing introduced between the colour changes as will become apparent as the blog progresses. The main woods are American Black Walnut and Sycamore with Yew stringing. I will be book-matching woods where necessary. First step i...

Building a drum/disc sander #1: Designing and demensioning

02-25-2012 08:24 AM by WoodenSoldier | 3 comments »

For months now I have looked at other people’s homemade drum sanders with the intention of building one myself. About 4 months ago I went out and purchased some MDF to make the discs to stack into the actual drum, but quickly abandoned the whole project when I got busy. Over the last week I decided to start it back up and finally cut enough circle to build a 14” wide drum. But then I started thinking to myself “Why just build a drum sander? Why not put a disc sander ...
