  1. I had sooo much fun with the project, for Colonial Wall Box Part 1 click on the proceeding link. After the getting the parts cut out in the Part 1 post, I sanded the pieces that were going to be on the inside portion of the box area to 400. I like to sand before assembly anything that may be hard to sand after assembly. Once I got the parts sanded, I glued them up and let sit over night. Once it was all set up, I went ahead and constructed the base and routed a recessed 1/4 round profile around the front and sides, and glued and screwed the base to the box. I used dark colored straight slot number 6 screws. countersunk flush so in case the recipient wants to set the box on a table instead of hanging it on a wall, the screws wouldn't hit the surface. I like using straight slot screws in woodworking, it just seems correct to me, and classy. Before I assembled the base on the box, I took to sculpting the edges and the upper neck. The upper neck was done with a round file and cleaned up with a half round and then sanded. If I had a cigar shave I would have used it, someday I want to get one, Veritas has some wonderful cigar shaves. I love the way the lines turned out on the neck, The black knob I sawed off a tiny piece of ebony, and I took a chisel and rounded the portion that was inserted into a hole in the drawer face. The knob is far from being round, but I love it because it's faceted by my chisel and has flats all over it showing that it was truly done by hand. I wish I had a nice close up of the knob. The tiny drawer bottom is even raised a bit. So that's it, it was fun, and it's classy looking I think. I'll do more for sure.
  2. See Part 2 of this build and completed project. Yesterday I was wrapping up some work for a customer, and I had sometime in between waiting for the paint to dry so I thought, man I'd sure love to do something fun right now. And I have always wanted to build one of the Colonial Wall Boxes we have here on our site at the Downloads department. So I came in and printed out the plan, took it out to the shop and commenced to ripping down a 10/4 chunk of cherry to build the box. First photo is my block of Cherry that I cross cut off 18" from a 10 foot length of it I had laying around, you can see our colonial box plan to the right of it. Then it took me about an hour to get the pieces roughed out of that 10/4 Cherry, I had to re-saw it on the TS, take one pass then flip it and another pass. But we got the parts roughed out, or some of the parts, we still need the base and the drawer parts, but the body of it is roughed out pretty good. Then a dry fit to make sure it resembles the image in the plan. I band-sawed the back and sides out about 1/16th up to the layout line, and I used a rasp to fair the curves and bring the shape into the pencil lines. I still have a couple hours to go on this lil project, but it is fun! These are very cool looking. Once together I'll be smoothing the edges, sculpting the outline and beveling, to give it some character and to get away from the boxy look it has now.
  3. Recent purchase of hearing aids made me think I needed a box to carry extra batteries. I have always wanted to make one of these slide top boxes so that was the answer.
  4. Finished this box yesterday for a club challenge Saturday. Was going to do a twist all the way up but when I cut it in two They did not match. So will do two boxes . One has twist top and the next will be twist bottom.
  5. Cut out the bottom Cut the strips Cut the miters Glued them all together Now, the long talk with wood. Will it be black walnut or bubinga?? This determination takes time, often requiring many back-and-forth exchanges, and usually a nap. Choices Yes/No?
  6. Part 2 of making a jewelry box Cut the rabbets for the bottom and sides. Clean the rabbets up and do a test fit Let the glue set up for a day. Part 3 will be making the bottom and trim pieces. Set the assembly jig and do a dry fit Glue the joints and clamp it all together. Let the glue set for 24 hours. Part 3 will be making the bottom and trim pieces.
  7. It's been a busy week for me but no turning. Computer upgrades and a 1960's tube type stereo problem. Can you believe a 6GW8 vacuum tube is $49.95 + shipping!!!!!!!!!!!!! Our Patriot Turners- @HandyDan posted a pictorial journey of a super cane he made. He explained how he made this beauty and gave us some really great tips! Please check out Dan's post and see how he did this- @Ron Altier used his new Easy Wood Tools faceplate to turn a sweet little pine box. He explained how he felt about the new faceplate in his post- Ron also posted a picture of the new faceplate. Everyone who has used the Easy Wood Tools faceplates agreed with his assessment. @Gerald showed us a "twisted" box he turned. At first I thought it might have been made on a Legacy lathe but Gerald explained how he did it- @Jim from Easy Wood Tools shared a video with us from the "Dread Knot Workshop". This really demonstrates what can be done with the new Easy Wood Tools mini hollowers! What’s Coming Up- The American Association of Woodturners 33rd Annual International Symposium Raleigh, North Carolina July 11-14, 2019 Registration can be done at- https://www.woodturner.org/page/2019RaleighRegistration For The Newbies- @Gerald shared a link to a video series on Beginning Woodturning. The videos are from Fine Woodworking and the author is Mike Mahoney. You can find the link in Gerald's post- We all know lathe chucks are expensive. Every once in a while we might stumble into a good deal but unfortunately the chuck threads and the headstock spindle may not match. Mike Peace put up a video explaining how spindle adapters/inserts may just allow you to take advantage of that good deal- Expand Your Horizons- Some time during the past couple of weeks, one of our turners posted a recommendation for a turning text. I believe it was @Steve Krumanaker. Steve wasn't sure if he did it but he knew the book I was trying to reference. Click on the above image for a link to Amazon to see more about this book. New Turning Items- The folks a Woodturners Wonders have a new respirator available. I'm not sure how this would work with a face shield- Check out the specifications at- https://woodturnerswonders.com/products/cleanspace2-respirator Everything Else- In case you missed the separate post on this https://www.woodworkersjournal.com/woodturning-monthly/?utm_medium=email Tim Yoder has a two part video on turning "Drink Covers". Tim's videos are always a treat to watch. Check out his use of his Easy Wood Tools!!! Part 2 is linked from Tim's YouTube page. Safe turning
  8. Came home from work Thursday and found a wonderful box full of goodies for making Shaker Oval Boxes. I ordered this starter set to learn how to make the boxes, from John Wilson box maker. The Home Shop | Shaker Oval Boxes | John Wilson | Shaker Craftsman | Charlotte Michigan | 48813 WWW.SHAKEROVALBOX.COM It includes everything to get started from the water pan to bend the bands, to the forms to make box sizes from #0 through #4 and the copper tacks, the finger templates and a few more items to get started. I have Mr. Wilson's books that I purchased previously and enjoyed them so much, and I completely enjoy the man as well, I decided to go one further and acquire the set to get started. My goal is to learn these sizes, then as I progress I'll make my own forms and finger patterns for the larger size boxes. Any competent woodworker can create this kit on their own, but the reality is, I do like supporting a craftsman when I can, when funds permit it, and since I have came to know John Wilson through his books and videos, I like the idea of giving him my business anyway I can. Thanks Mr. Wilson! I'll build oval boxes along with my chairs and stools and other Shaker crafts and other items as well, and someday I'll get good enough to hopefully supplement our retirement when the time comes. I'll keep ya'll abreast of my box making progress.

    Pill box

    This is something I turned out yesterday or our next club challenge. Turn a lidded box min of 4 inch tall including the lid. Had to take a break from offering plates so this is it. No finish on it yet.
  10. A friend of mine a year and a half ago was camping by this lake with his buddies. A big wind came up abruptly as they were standing around the fire trading great adventures. Suddenly a cedar tree blew over and pinned three of them to the ground. The others rushed to cut the out to rescue them. My friend was the only one seriously hurt. he had a broken right leg and a smashed ankle. To make the story short, after much surgery and therapy he was able to sort of walk and he fell again and re-broke his ankle. They re-did the surgery on his ankle and and it was healing fine and he had a stroke. He is only 53yo and had some brain damage along with some paralysis of his left side. While recuperating his buddies would come to visit and one day one of them brought him a piece of fire wood from the tree. He then later asked me to make him something from the block of wood for a remembrance of the experience. So here is what I made. Herb
  11. Today I made a band saw box out of a piece of domestic cherry fire wood. Herb

    Spalted box

    Finished this box today. The bottom was not two piece till I turned the bottom off . So I added a stand. Box is spalted white oak and lid is spalted pecan. The finish is lacquer buffed with Maguires buffing cpd and then polish.
  13. It's been a busy week for our turners here at the Patriot Woodworker! Our Patriot Turners- @HandyDan posted a fantastic tutorial on making an inside-out cross ornament- Read Dan's instructions and our turners' comments here- @Ron Altier has been cranking out ornaments all week! His first set uses colored plywood- Ron talks about these- And he also created these- @HandyDan was't just making ornaments this week. He has been creating more "bullet" pens from a couple of different caliber cartridges Dan explains what he did to get these beauties finished. @RustyFN turned a beautiful little lidded pot from a gorgeous selection of woods. Rusty said he had a little trouble with the overall finish. Check his post and see what our turners had to say- Rusty wasn't our only turner making small vessels. @Gerald used a couple of different species of spalted wood to come up with this awesome piece- Gerald explains more in his post- What’s Coming Up- Click on the above image for the link to more information. For The Newbies- Mike Peace has a video covering many of his turning tips. Although a little longer than what he usually does, it is well worth the watch- Expand Your Horizons- Sometime the wood selected for a turning will speak for itself. Grain, color, defects can all help create that special piece. If the wood doesn't speak, or the turning needs to be more personalized, Carl Jacobson shows us how to add a photograph to the surface. New Turning Items- Faceplate system for OneWay type live centers. These pieces can be used to create custom jam chucks. For more information and pricing, follow this link- http://www.bestwoodtools.com/ Everything Else- The latest Woodturning OnLine arrived today. It has a nice preview of the latest Glenn Lucas DVD and shows him working on an Irish platter. The newsletter can be read at- https://www.woodturningonline.com/. Rick Turns posted his latest (February) list of YouTube woodturning videos- Safe turning
  14. A lady in my Sunday School class is doing a scrapbook for her grandson as a graduation present and wanted me to make a box . This is the box with BLO only so far.
  15. I do the audio/visual program for our turning club and we upgraded the computer from laptop to desktop last year (cheaper to upgrade a desktop than a gaming laptop) and have had it stored in a plastic box along with a box I made for the cameras and auxiliary cables. Carrying that big tub even with a folding cart was just a pain so I designed a box for it. The box is padded with carpet I have had for about 25 years (came out of a drugstore) . The latches are matched so lid can be put on either direction without causing a bind. To install I put latches (2 piece) on one side then reversed the top and put on half the latch on both sides (top on one and bottom on the other) to match. The top is divided for cameras and other items. What you cannot see in this is that there is a double support on the near side to lock the top in. The top locks in with these swing arms and is secure to turn over keeping items in place. There is foam on top and bottom of the camera compartment. Paint is acrylic lacquer.

    Heart box

    Here's my latest project, a heart shaped box with a sliding dovetail in the lid with a heart shaped pin to hold the lid in place. 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 x 3/4. The hardest part is cutting a dovetail in 1 1/2 Boxelder (maple).
  17. Just in time for Christmas. These were a labor of love and I'm really happy how they finished up. Even so, I am so-o-o-o glad they are done. 8 cryptex boxes for the grand kids. I have no delusions about how the boxes will compare to the fancy electronic gadgets kids want these days, but maybe one day they'll be appreciated. I think I posted in progress pictures of these a while back but not sure. I actually started them in the summer but shelved them until closer to Christmas. Last week, I decided I needed another, really had to scratch to remember how I'd done everything, even had to go back and watch Carl Jacobson's excellent video on making them again. The code on each one is their birth day with "Z"=zero and "A"=1 etc. Steve
  18. Few weeks ago my Dad brings me this dilapidated looking wooden box. Cracked sides, falling apart and has that musty stale air smell. Tells me he needs this fixed up and make sure it will be able to handle rough use, use screws he tells me. He is in a K-9 Search and Rescue Unit so they are on the move and have to set up, then move out again. Have no idea what goes in it. Took it apart, pieces broke, a real mess. The top, useless, nothing salvaged. Hinges and hardware, a disaster just chunked them. Replaced the bottom and ends with some 3/4 ish plywood scrap I had as well as the lid. Used some of the old broken pieces to make the frame for the lid and glued it up. Same with the box part. Since Dad mentioned screws I added them as well, ya know just to be sure. Then looked at it and decided to have some fun and proceeded to use the entire box of 2 inch screws, 50 in all. The plywood was scrap so I used the nice looking sides on the inside and clear coated them with 3 coats of Helmsman Urethane. Not a furniture finish but I use it on stuff that goes outside like shovel handles and such. The outside I got creative. He had mentioned to make it visible and something he would notice at a glance. Looking through my collection I found this smoke gray, perfect for bottom, oil based and durable. Check. The top, hey purple is cool people!!! To finish it off I added his initials in bright white, he said be noticeable!! The handles are webbing for a weed eater long since retired. To make the holes for the 1/4 bolts I used to attach them I took a piece of 1/4 round stock and made a sharp point. Heated it up with a torch and then slid the webbing over it. Makes a perfect hole and will not rip. Should last a lifetime. All in all a fun project. I can imagine the looks it will get when he breaks this out next search.
  19. Finished up my sister and brother-in-law's request. Wall mounted box. 3/8" red oak. Over measurements approximately 7.5" wide x 6.5" deep x 10" tall. Piano hinge and key lock. Golden oak stain and satin wipe on poly. Sometimes these little boxes are more difficult than the larger ones.
  20. These are some more laminated boxes I have been working on . Have tried thin and thick laminates. The woods are mainly walnut, pecan, river birch, cherry. Most of the wood on these was some small scraps slightly larger than the boxes. To turn the box since there was not enough wood for a tenon I uses a sacrifical face plate and used thick CA to glue on blank. Once the turning and hollowing is done the box is removed from the tenon with a sharp rap on a chisel at the glue line. Sometime this will lead to chipping but most just pop right off. Of note here is to place something soft or a bucket on the lathe bed to catch the turning. Hardest part of these projects as I said the last time I showed one was finishing the bottom. It can be done by reversing in pen jaws and bringing up the tailstock with a soft touch mounted. I just do not like flat bottoms even on boxes. Walnut,Pecan,River Birch Pecan, Oak, Mahogany veneer River Birch, paduck Pecan, Cherry, Purpleheart Pecan, teak
  21. this is not the same box but is the way I start building one. I have to print out 10 exact patterns. The tenth one is just solid with no holes for drawers. All the pieces I cut out for the drawers are later glued together except for the front of the drawer and the back of the drawer. I use dowels to line up everything . If I don't use the dowels when clamping two pieces together it could slip just a hair one way or the other and cause lots of extra sanding or cause for the trash can. Each set of holes has to be in a different place than the next side of the pieces. And you can't drill the next side until the first side is marked and drilled and glued. Drawers are somewhere around 5 1/2 to 6" deep. The body being one solidly glued up mass with no cuts joining each drawer keeps it all from warping from season changes.. I use brasing or stainless steel rods for drawer pulls before I start spraying the clear lacquer so they will stay looking good and not tarnish. I also put a wider drawer front on to cover up the possible gaps from sanding and creating a back looking mess. And here also the dowels help to line up the drawer fronts. So far, all the sawing was with the scroll saw so the reason I call my boxes scroll saw jewelry boxes. Now before I glue the front of the drawer on and the back of the drawer on I first mark where the cavity of the drawer will be and cut that area out with a band saw. Then using the dowel holes I first pt in the pieces I can now glue the on and they will have bee lined up before the cavities of the drawers were sawn in... Its not a good idea to be drinking beer when all this is taking place for all these holes I drill has to have a stop set on the drill press or else... There is way more preparation in one of these boxes and a few more weeks involved.. I cut the last 4 boxes I made out outside my motor home while sitting in an rv park in Colo.. I had all the wood glued together for each piece I needed and would only glue on one pattern one at a time as I started to scroll saw each piece out... Gluing a pattern on two or three days before the sawing takes place the pattern will shrink and stretch and some might ruin to not be usable. I always took two or three extra patterns and pieces of prepared wood just in case... I have also found two different printers will make different size patterns even though I use the same pattern in two different printers..Not good when I am having to make multiple patterns and needing some more away from the printer I first used. When cutting out this many of the same thing and needing them as close to each other as I can get them, I find I have to start my scroll saw cutting from the same place and go in the same direction on all the pieces... Going two different directions on two different pieces a person has a tendency to lean or push the wood just enough to make differences and I get get bad line up problems and then add that many more pieces it gets too wild....Yes it ruined my very first wide box because of this... Using the dowel system where at least 3 dowels and most of the time 4 dowels on each side of all the pieces I can get things more manageable when its time to sand it all smooth on the inside and the outside and all the drawers.. All these have to stay in line as to how they were sawn so lots of marking goes on and off. Don't even know if this is understandable or not?? And I can sure see the difference in my sawing from starting in the morning or just before I quit at night. Those lines can sure get wavy. Jess
  22. This morning there was a strange sighting here in south central PA. After Googling many images and news reports I determined it was the sun! Nice to have it back!! Please don't forget the Patriot Woodworker's raffle. Some wonderful prizes. Help support your site! https://thepatriotwoodworker.com/forums/topic/22913-patriot-woodworker-2018-community-raffle-fundraiser/? Our Patriot Turners- Our turners have been really productive this week with wide array of items- @Ron Altier posted a really nice ornament that contains woods of many different colors. I can't imagine how he did the glue-up on this one! Ron posted more images and some information about the turning in his post- Ron wasn't the only one making ornaments this week, @Steve Krumanaker turned some awesome "Beehive" ornaments. Steve explains his design in this post- @Gerald is experimenting with some passive amplifiers for a smart phone. He tried several designs to see which was the loudest. His post contains other images and input from our turners. If you have ever made one of these, check out his post and give him your ideas- Gerald was super busy with other turnings as well Head on over to this post to see some of the other boxes he made. @RustyFN turned a gorgeous cedar bowl. The grain and colors are fantastic. Rusty got lots of great comments on this piece. @DAB finished up a replica of a 90mm shell to fit into a shell casing. He posted a little about making it, here- What’s Coming Up- If you are in the Atlanta area, the International Woodworking Fair is taking place August 22 thru 25. Our very generous sponsor, Easy Wood Tools, ( @Jim from Easy Wood Tools ) has their booth set up and it looks like they are having a ball! This photo was taken by Carl Jacobson. From The Internet- Patriot member @Gene Howe posted this video on making a 3 winged three corner bowl. I'm reposting Gene's link here in case some of you missed it. Easy Wood Tools posted a YouTube video by Tracey Malady where she demonstrate the use of the Easy Wood Hollowing tools. I think she bought her depth gauge the same place I got mine! Tim Yoder has released a 2 part video in which he turns some cute little mice. The second part of the video is linked from his post. These might make some nice gifts for someone. Everything Else- I lucked into this website from a link on another forum. If you looking for lathe centers, this place just might have what you need- and other stuff, too- https://zlivecenter.com/index.php?route=common/home Safe turning
  23. This is the Rob Corson dowel hinge. With a bullnose or ball router bit on a router table the size of the dowel, route a 1/4 round slot in the back of lid and back of box. Set the fence at the center of the bit diameter and run the top and the box through. The fence can be set in or out to suit the particular box and how wide the lid opens. Take a dowel the same size as the router bit and cut lengths to suit the length of the box, they can be the same length or different lengths. Drill a hole in the center of the dowel the size of the pin. The pin can be metal rod, or wooden dowels. Assemble the dowels on the rod, and adjust to the length of the box,marking the positions of the dowel segments on the box and the top. Put a little glue on every other segment on the box. MAKE SURE THE GLUE HAS ROOM TO SQUEEZE OUT AND NOT SQUEEZE INTO THE NEXT DOWEL SPACE. Carefully lay the assembled dowel hinge onto the glue. Carefully set the top on and lightly clamp down When the glue is dry lift off the top and spin the every other dowel. Then apply a small amount of glue onto the free spinning segments of dowels allowing for squeeze out of the glue. carefully set the top on and clamp lightly. Allow the glue to dry. After the glue has set, gently open the box. The Joy you feel when the box opens is beyond description, the sinking feeling if it doesn't is beyond printing. Only had one that didn't open, and I have done a lot of them. You can also wax the pin,if you so desire. Herb
  24. A friend of mine is celebrating her 13th year in recovery. Made her a token box.
