Round Weave Top Box

Post by jarm2 »

Here is my attempt at a Round Weave Top Box. It is made with Box Elder and stained maple.
I used an .125" Ball Nose for the finish on the weave. Finished with Polycrylic semi-gloss. Handle is turned from walnut.

Very pretty box. Thanks for showing it.

I had never seen any box elder until last year at a woodworking show in Hickory, NC. I Bought a few pieces in 1/2" and 1/4" thickness by 4" wide and 38" long. The almost white wood with vivid pink streaks is very unusual to me. I like the way you relieved the knob to fit over the weave. Nice touch.

Thanks for the comment. I actually made a pocket in the weave to fit the handle into. There is also a .375" pin on the bottom of the handle that the handle fits into. I thought the Box elder was rather unique and would make a nice piece that was a bit different.

That was the way I would have done it also. From the photo it's hard to tell. It's like an optical illusion that can be seen either way.
