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:

This post is just to show you my latest creation: a pine box with roses on the lid. The roses and the top is milled from a single piece of laminated wood using a 5 mm cutter for roughing, a 3 mm ball nose cutter for finishing and a 1 mm ball nose cutter for the fine details of the roses.

Furthermore, the sides of the box are milled from 10 mm thick laminated wood with box joints. The box is 250x150x60 mm and is made from pine. I’ve given it a clear coating on the outside.

My latest creation

A rose plaque

This short update just to show you my latest creation: A rose plaque I made as a gift. It took my ShapeOko more than eight hours to mill this one, using 5 mm end mill for roughing and a 3 mm ball nose for the finish in both directions.

Here is the result:
