Default Box wiht a bow comming along.....

I'm going to put a coat of shelack on it when it is done. The bow is not glued up as yet, but just wanted to see how it will look. I didn't do any laminated wood because I don't have the means to do it, but I have not yet decided whether I'm going to embellish it some other way, like a sprinkle of glitter on the bow or not. I put a dark Walnut on the box. It gives the box a rustic look, almost an antique look. I'm still happy with the outlook of the box. I know Sis will like it as she likes any thing that has a rustic look to it. Just showing it off for now. Any ideas or comments are welcome. Have a great day Fay

Yes it is. It is the first box in her book called Wooden boxes. It's the one with the cup cake box on the front. An easy box to cut but I had a little trouble with the bow loops and tails. One of the loops got damaged so I'm using 5 loops instead of the 6 loops. I have one piece of wood left to cut another compound cut ornament with. I ordered some polar blades to do that with. For the box, the wood is all poplar. I may just use the shellack on the bow, but the box itself is looking pretty good. Now to go down and try to finish gluing up the bow. Have a great day Fay

I understand the breakage. I was cutting a portrait of Charlie Chaplin and was on the last cut of the face when the entire face broke out and all I had was a hole in the wood in the shape of Chaplin's head.
The Polar blades are great. Got some from Mike for compound cuts and it makes a big difference. I have to try one of those boxes soon. Just got some Cypress wood to try out. I love the grain in it.
Anyway, great job! Can't wait to see it finished.

It's going to have a coat or two of shellac on it and then a lining in the bottom inside. It's not great looking but hopefully the shellac will make it look better. So will do that tomorrow. It is pretty cold today so did not do much in the shop for today. I wanted to oil my saw but I didn't get it done today like I had first planned. Have a great day Fay

Sis just got home and I showed it to her and she loves it. Tomorrow I may put the shellac on the bow and sprinkle a little bit of glitter on it, now to choose the color. I think it will look great. So back in the shop tomorrow. I do want to try her cup cake box or one of the other ones. Dang left the book in the shop. I don't have a Forstner drill bit or what ever bit it calls for to make the hole for the cup cake ring box so I might have to adjust it some how. Looks good enough to eat. I think that pine apple cake box would be neat too. I also want to try the coffee cup one too. Have a great night Fay

Nicely done! When I glued the loops on I used a dab of super glue gell with regular wood glue around it. Put accelerator on the box put the loop where I wanted , the super glue bonds instantly and holds the loop in place till the wood glue cures.
I like the lght bows and a bit of sparkle will make them pop.
