Default Celtic knot box

I made this box over the past few days. It is a pattern that is in the book called Fun and Easy Projects , but I forget who the author is. I had fun making it. I made the top and the bottom out of ply wood and the knot is a scrap piece of pine and the sides of the box was a 2 by 4. It was a little hard to cut but Big Yellow did a great job on that. So basically it is scrap wood that I had laying around. There isn't any wood left to make any thing out of but I do have wood for compound cutting so at least there is that. Got to make a trip to Home Depot for some wood in the near future. I think later today I want to try some napkin rings. I have a few scraps left so that would be a great project to make out of what I have and would be great gifts as well. Enjoy the pictures all,, Fay

Nicely done Fay. For real thick woods I like to use a spiral blade, it does however take some practice to get good cuts but I have found that the cut it makes does not generally do the curving thing that flat blades tend to do.

Very nice, Fay. Nice contrast in woods. I use FD Polar blades for all my thick cutting.

Thanks all. I went to a 7 or a 9 blade for the 2 by 4 and used a 9 for the ply wood and a 5 for the knot itself. It all cut pretty nice but the 2 by 4 was harder to cut but got through it fine. . I would have used all pine but there wasn't enough to use up but there was enough to make a set of napkin rings and that is a nice useful thing to make and I can make a set in an evening. Will have to post pictures of those once I embellish them a bit...

I love the way you carved or sanded the knot to give it the over under look.

Thanks, I wished I had tried my mac mop thing on it when I made that part, but will at another time when I make another one. I did the shaping and sanding with my Dremel and the Guinevere sanding system. The Dremel sanded where the Guinevere couldn't reach.

I like your Scrap box :-) , you did a great job of using up scrap pieces. I cut a lot of thick stuff from time to time and I use a FD 5 polar, if you take your time it works well.
