Band Saw Box
Saturday 9 am – 4 pm
February 8, 2020.
Each student will learn the basics of box making using the Band Saw. Basic ripping and cross cutting will be learned along with cutting inside and outside curves. Each box will be sanded and finished with two coats of tung oil. The boxes will be lined with a brown flock material.
Using solid Walnut as the main wood, each student will complete two original, one of a kind boxes. One large box, approximately 4″× 8″ and one small box made from the inside of the larger box. (These boxes sell for $40.00- $50.00 each.)
One of the boxes will have custom made dowel plugs, made from exotic, local or reclaimed lumber artistically arranged in its surface. Each student will cut their own dowel plugs. In order to create the pattern shown in the photo, there will be approximately 4-8 different woods used.
Principles of Art and Design (size, scale, color, contrast, proportion etc.) will be discussed and demonstrated.
If time permits, additional techniques will be demonstrated, such as, cutting squares and strips, checkerboard patterns etc.
Each student will receive a detailed instruction sheet along with patterns.
