  • Bombe shaped jewelry box, trinket boxes, & what to do with scraps

    Apologies for the poor lighting.
    Plumbing pays the bills (barely), but it's making sawdust 'n shavings that keeps me sane.
    Sometimes I can sell enough pieces to keep me in sandpaper & glue.

      Big Jim,

      Thanks for posting your great work!

      Work on that lighting though so we can see the details better.

      I'm always interested in "boxes"... so much variation and these seem to be very fine examples of such craft. I'd appreciate your insight on some of the details you exercised here.

      Thanks again,

      CWS

        Here ya go, CW.
        I got the plans for this project from Woodworker's Journal mag.
        The box joints were cut using a router table jig.
        The walnut stock was planed down to 1-1/4" thick, and the finger joints
        cut and dry fitted. Then the curves were cut on a table saw at a diagonal
        just like you would do cove molding, rotating the box to cut each side and
        gradually raising the blade for each pass to achieve the desired depth and shape.
        Then the box was glued up with the bottom in place followed by a lot
        of scraping and sanding. Thanks for your interest.

          Thanks BigJim,

          I was wondering about the cove cut. My first thought that it was glued up from a molding, but that seemed not quite right considering the joints. Now I understand, so thank you very much.

          Very nice work and again, thanks for your details,

          CWS
