Default Some assembly required

Never make it easy on myself, did not try only ONE Bow Box but my wife said that I should make 3 of them. Well I'm still at it but I think that I might just start to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Looking great, Pete. Your wife will love them. Bet you'll be asked to make even more!

And actually, once you get into the groove, it's almost as easy to crank out a couple dozen loops as it is just a few.

Looking good so far. What wood did you use for the top on the box that has a finish?
I really like the variation in color.
When I made mine I put another line inside the loop at about 1/8 so I got 2 loops instead of just one. One small one and one normal size. Minimal wasted wood.

Looking great, Pete! I remember when my box was at that level of completion. I really enjoyed working on that project. Nothing seemed tedious about it, and it was a lot of fun.

You still have arguably one of the tougher steps left....gluing on the bows. It's a little tricky, and as Rolf had mentioned in his previous thread, the little loops are not easy to dry fit and the same time. It takes a little approximation and patience, but it will look great when done!

BTW, I'm working up some new bow boxes for Mindy, and I ordered some of that Nexabond glue (spelling?). I think that may just do the trick if it has a quick grab that doesn't dry brittle.

After making loops from gum paste, which fractures easily, the wooden loops are a treat!

Those are going to be beautiful when they are finished. I need to get into that lamination part of these. Haven't done it yet but will. Sis loves the one I made for her and she has her's filled with her favorite bracelets.

Thanks for all the nice comments and words of encouragement to finish the assembly.

Rolf the top of the box is cherry.
Shawn did you used instant glue for the bows and tails? I think that it might go better???????

Nice work Pete.

Carole

Nexabond glue is just a medium or thick CA glue. It grabs pretty quick but still gives you time to position pieces.

I used the white trim and molding glue, it is thick and sticky. But I left a hole in the middle for a drop of super glue gel (CA) spritzed a bit of accelerator on the box and put the loop down. The CA glue holds instantly while the other cures.

My solution was not very sophisticated. I estimated the loops' locations the best I could and then glued one at a time using TiteBond II. I held direct pressure with my hand for a few minutes on each loop, and then had a little wadded up cloth which I gently wedged between the loop and the box top to give support while fully drying.

The tail ribbons were easy, as they could be clamped at their ends.
