no previous part Part 1 of bloodwood jewelry box series Part 2: Jewelry box coming along but lots of decisions to be made »

I got the cove cut on the tablesaw, my first time to try this. Even though I took several passes at the final depth there was a lot of sanding to do( I would have liked to use a scrapper but don’t have one yet). I cut out a piece of 2×4 (the opposite profile) on the band saw for a sanding block.

I also decide to use miniature ogee bracket feet. Making them would be a blog entry by it self as it took several steps to make them


The little ding on the corner was some chipout that happens know matter what you try to do to stop it , so I mixed some saw dust and white glue for a filler and hadn’t sanded it yet.

Thanks to Blake for giving me the heads up on allergic reaction to some exotic woods like bloodwood.

This looks like the start of a great box. I look forward to seeing the progress.

for the scraper part i sometimes use a piece of broken glass. like from a picture frame or window pane or any sheet not from a bottle though. the sheet glass works great and when broken has many curves and edges that are shart for a long time. it is only sharp on one edge so there isnt that bad a chance of cutting yourself.i got the idea from somebody else on here but cant remember who at the moment. good luck looks great so far.
