Another oak and pao rosa combo, keepsake box.
Dimensions: 34cmL X 10cm W.
The 2 small side lids are held in place with 5×2mm R.E. magnets.
Lined with padded silk velvet.
Spray laquer finish.

The back side does not have the pyramid details.

This was the first time using rattle can laquer, and I can honestly say, I hate it; and likely will not use it again.

Enjoy!

beautiful imagination and execution, however I’m not too fond of the ‘handle’. in my eye it takes away from the overall image of one stunning box

This box has a few bells and whistles, it gives it a lot of character. Nice work.

Another great innovative design. Cool features and the magnets are clever. I like the pyramids.
Thanks for sharing.

You really love to sand don t you 8^)

- splintergroup

A necessary evil.

I´ll tell you a secret, one that might make many fine-woodworkers cringe: and that is, I start with 80grit, then go straight to 180grit, then do my finish, whatever that is. I do the really fine sanding as the finish progresses.

Shhh, dont tell anyone:))

But, Dick, notice how perfectly all the angles line-up and are symmetrical!

And ya gotta admit, that little cove detail is wicked cool.

I guess you wont be the one to buy this box, hahaha…........

OK Brian – I did notice quite a lot but did I say anywhere in the text that I didn’t like ? Overall (as usual) it’s definitely off the charts ‹(•¿•)›

Very creative. Congrats on your DT3

Can you explain how you make your pyramids? I take long stock and cut my 45º angles and then cut a pin to attach it to whatever. I always wish I had 2 table saws so I wouldn’t have to switch from 45º to 90º for the pins. It always seems so tedious, I’m sure you have a smarter way to accomplish this.

Sure.
But i dont know about “smarter.”
I layout for and cut all of the pins first, using a crosscut sled and an ftg blade. Then I cut 45ºs for a pyramid on the mitre saw, on both ends of the stock piece. Chop them off on the mitre saw, using a zero-clearance fence/table combo, repeat. I clamp a little box (special for this purpose) to the right of the blade on mitre saw to catch the off-cut as it goes flying- usually!

If Im doing, say, a 1cm pyramid, I cut alot extra, then have them stockpiled.

So yeah, I wouldnt call that smarter, just “done.”

I was totally joking, Dick. It might take folks around here awhile to get in tune with my sense of humor!

So, does that mean you want to buy it? I give you good price, because you were the first to welcome me to LJs.

Thats me, joking.
