Default (WIP)Mini Boxes

it's that time of year, I have 6 projects to do in the next month.
I'm starting off by making mini ribbon and bow boxes for the girls at work. I have a feeling when Mrs.Trout see's them done she'll be wanting me to make her a couple too so who knows how many I'll be making by the time Christmas gets here...

these boxes are maple and they measure 3x3x3 inches....



the best part, I can have one of these boxes done in a little over an hour.
I'm sure the ribbon and bows will take a lot longer...

Trout

Looks good Trout. The ribbons and bows are actually easier than the boxes themselves. With your attention to detail I am sure there will be no problem at all Looking forward to seeing them finished.

Nicely done. Diana Thompson just posted some compound patterns for some ribbons.

as for the thickness of the wood, I ripped down a 3/4 inch maple board and by the time I plained this half down it ended up being 3/16 inch thick.
the sides consist of two pieces which are glued together and off set 3/16 to hold the bottom and top on....

as for the ribbon, I'm using purple and yellow heart.....

Looking great Trout!!! I think more than Mrs. Trout will be wanting these by the time you finish them up and everyone sees them!!! Can't wait to see the ribbons and bows...I still need to give that method a try.

Those are going to look great Trout....I agree they will really be liked when received. Those are some woods I wish we had here on the Island...I miss working with so many different colors of wood.

I should of been done with these last weekend but I ended up putting brakes on Mrs.T's car and replacing the hot water heater instead so that took me out of the mood...
plus I needed to get another project done before this Friday..

now I can get back to work, I need 3 so I still have one more to make...
