Jewelry box build

Recommended Posts

1/32 spacers ! Consider me quite impressed, 1/16 isn't easy. Your repairs turned out well, that's the true measure of skill ,well just short of perfection but that rarely happens until you've built 4 or 5 of the same piece.

I forget, when is your wife's birthday... just want to make sure you are staying on schedule.  Call in sick if you have to, the boss will understand. ;)

Looks like you've got all the nice toys for cutting dovetails !  I've been lusting after a Knew Concepts saw but haven't had a project that would justify buying one yet. The titanium ones are so light & strong , but so expensive !

You keep saying wenge is so aweful but it just makes me want to try it even more. I love the look of the drawer fronts. I think the look is worth the splinters.

LOL they are expensive but compared to my old fret saw you can tension the blade tight enough to take almost all of the flex out of it which is great when cutting next to the base lines. I figure I really don't have many bad habits that I spend money on so I pretty much buy what I want even if the price is a bit insane. I am also to the point where I have most of the big stuff so if I buy a few pricey hand tools it still doesn't hurt the tool budget to much. In fact I have been running a surplus for a couple years :o

Having said that I keep lusting over that Felder J/P Llama has which would definitely put a huge defficit into it  :)

It does look nice I agree with you on that.

Hey Drew, got splinters ?  You need to get some of these ! Kev told me about them. I keep one in my wallet plus the medicine cabinet at home & the shop.

You can find them on Amazon pretty cheap too.

Interesting! I did a science experiment in sixth-grade, that demonstrated blood type identification. Those are the same lancets we used on our volunteers to draw samples.

The tip is quite sharp it's triangular but it's not like a scalpel. It excels at getting those elusive tiny splinters that manage to grab your total attention. That's why I keep one in my wallet.

I bet it felt good to get back at it.  And in your defense Paul, I don't think you mentioned which of your wife's birthdays you were making this for.  But at the rate you are progressing I see no problem getting this finished by April of 2019

No more diamonds but I did buy her a Mazda MX5 convertible as a summer car :)

You are right my friend just ask her about the bedroom set that took 10 years me 10 years to finish LOL. In my defense we moved half way through and I had to build a new shop before work could continue :)
