    MATT."

    OK OK
    Hint taken.

    Daughter has been talking about a particular sought of box so thought I'd give that a go.

    Have a Blackwood board thats been laying around for a few years.

    Chopped and milled it up. Bit long at the moment, will have to chop it up some more to make it fit the 500 x500.

    Got some veneer thats been laying around for a while too. Some of its flat, some not so much.

    But after spraying it with some flattening solution and pressing it for a week came out nice and flat. Forgot to take any photo's off that. Popped it into the new vacuum bag and glued it down to some MDF(does that count as wood?). Came out ok.

    What to put on the other side?

    cheers
    Shane

    Milled up the sides, cut the mitres and glued up box.

    Itís looking good Shane; are you going to tell us what the box will be for or are we to be left in suspense until we figure it out ourselves with new clues added periodically?

    Iím intending to use splines on my mitre joints (got some lovely ebony!), how did you cut yours; by hand or on the table saw?

    I'll hold off on the inside, though some of the next steps might help give it away.

    Cut the splines on the table saw then I have a 2mm chisel which I used to clean up and get flat bottoms.

    Shane,
    You might possibly get an extra 0.001 point for a tidy workshop, possibly??.

    Cheers Matt.[emoji6]

    Itís all about the illusion of showing calm and tidy ness, when in the background it may be a little more chaotic..

    I've been trying to work out what sort of box E would like. I think I know.
    Box is looking awesome. Fantastic veneer.
    Those were the droids I was looking for.

    Feel free to have a guess.

    You could say I turned these but was more like forced in to shape with 80 grit sandpaper. These will be incorporated in some way?

    Also I though I would try mount my bench to the wall and work of it side ways for a while.)

    Surely that's got to be worth a few extra points Matt?

    Does it have anything to do with jewellery?
    The side ways bench means the dust and shavings fall straight to the floor. Good idea

    Shot in the dark hereÖ is it a box containing a game; backgammon, checkers or similar?
