A maple bowl in kind of a tulip shape, 12" diameter and 4" deep. I thought about "framing" the pattern with some heavy shading around the edge, decided not to and just left it plain. I turned this to be functional so it has bees wax for a finish. Steve
I don't make a lot of boxes. No particular reason, just not something that really appeals to me. I've had a basket weave pattern in my mind and wanted to do it on a smaller item before attempting it on a larger one. So, for some reason I decided to do a box. Since I had planned to embellish this box, I wondered if I could hide the join between the top and the bottom so I planned my pattern with that in mind. Then, I wondered, could I trick people about where the top and the bottom meet. So, I made it upside down, kind of. Anyway, here's the pictures, this is my sort of upside down, basket weave, maple box. It's about 4" high and a couple inches in diameter. I really haven't figure out how to terminate one of these basket weaves, I can see it in my mind but it just doesn't work when I try to draw it. At any rate, the wife says she likes this so that's good enough for me. This is the top. The bottom, I know I use this "phicops" pattern a lot but I just really like it. Opened and the inside, the join is about 3/4" from the bottom as the box is sitting upright. I'm hoping to have some fun with this at our meeting next Sunday. I believe most people will think the join is near the obvious "top" and try to open it there. We'll see. Steve
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
