  1. box swap bonus box, frustration

    This is a bonus box I made for the box swap. It almost didn't happen! I found a tool to include as a gift and needed something to put it in. What better for a wood worker to do then to make a small box. I hit the shop and began. That's when the problems began. The 45's decided to give me fit...
  2. Box swap - Marquetry Box for jeffswildwood

    Here's the box that I made jeffswildwood for the box swap. I used a photo that I found online of Patos Island up in the San Juan Islands as the basis for this box. These islands to the north are home to 3 resident pods of Orcas and they swim up and down the Haro Strait between the San Juans and...
  3. 2018 Box Swap

    This is the box I made for the Spring 2018 Box Swap. I like working with wood. I get the most enjoyment setting up and trying new things with my machines. I decided to purchase a shaper instead of a router table. I like the idea of a shaper cutter on a 3/4 inch shaft verses a router bit in...
  4. African Mahogany and Walnut Box - Box Swap 2014

    Here's the box I did for the box swap: Made from African mahogany and walnut, with a bit of wenge. I've had this piece of mahogany kicking around for 5 years or so, waiting for a suitable project. Not that there's anything really special about African mahogany, but I didn't want to throw it...
  5. Walnut & Poplar Box with Copper - all reclaimed / salvaged materials

    This here is my main contribution to the 2014 Box Swap and it went to Clieb91. I also made another little box that went to his little girl, but I'll post that as another project. All materials in this box are reclaimed or salvaged. The box is made of black walnut and poplar, finished with...
  6. Cradle

    This is actually a project I finished almost a year ago, but I just found the pictures of. It's a cradle made from pine which was a surprise gift for my (then brand-new) nephew. A pretty simple project, but a lot of fun to build. I didn't have any plans for this, I just came up with it as I...

    Box Swap Today the box for the box swap came in. Well crafted and pretty wood (looks like oak) but the damn Post Office had the box for 14 days (sent priority) and mangled the outside and damaged the wooden box. I can repair it but there is no excuse for this. The sender should report it...

    Can You Fix This? I teach Industrial Arts at a small school in Pennsylvania. We have a wood shop teacher, a metal shop teacher, and I teach Computer-Aided Design. We try to have students begin their projects in the CAD lab and then take their plans to the shop for fabrication after they have...
  9. LumberJocks Swaps
    SEND ME A PM BY JULY 31st TO SIGN UP I brought this up in the Mallet swap thread, but I think the next swap should be a box swap. Since the majority of the swaps have been tools, I figured that we could use a swap where we USE the tools that everyone has received in the previous swaps. A box...
