Round box with roses

Another box with roses

I decided to make a jewelry box as a present for my wife this holiday. I milled every part on my Shapeoko 2: A lid with roses, a ring for the sides and a bottom part. The result looks like this:

I reused the 3D roses from this box and from the cabinet door I made earlier. The box is made from pine and has a diameter of 150 millimeters.

As seen on the last photo I’ve milled the lid on both sides: the roses on the upper side and a groove on the underside that fits into the box when the lid is on:

Box for coffee capsules

Box for Nespresso® coffee capsules

Like so many others I enjoy drinking coffee and I’ve bought myself a Nespresso® machine. Having a variety of coffee capsules I needed a nice way of storing them and I decided to make a box for holding a selection of coffee capsules.

The box is made from beech wood using my ShapeOko 2 for milling the holes in the bottom holding the capsules in place. On top of that I decided to try to make a French Polish since I’ve never tried to make one.

The later decision turned out to be very time consuming and I had to restart the process a couple of times by sanding the box and try again. Here’s the result:

Since my last post

This holliday

I know it’s been a long time since my last post (sorry about that) but that doesn’t mean that I haven’t been in my workshop! 🙂

I’ll post some of the things I’ve made since my last post.
