Thinking your cuts and movements through before acting can help save both fingers and scrapwood. Keeping your shop clean will help protect you, and your tools, from tripping hazards.
Looking up to watch the shop TV or visitor can result in your hand contacting the blade. Always wait until you have completed your cut before you take your eyes off the blade.
Mistakes happen when we rush to complete a job. A misaligned rip fence or improperly seated throat plate can sometimes cause a board to get stuck in mid cut. Forcing the board in these situations may cause kickback or contact with the blade. Take a moment to evaluate the situation and determine the problem. Goggles, Ear Protection, and Lung Protection should be used when operating tools. Use push sticks when working close to the blade and make sure the tool's safety features are in place.
Even without power, the spinning blade can still do a lot of damage. Care should be taken to ensure a supply of fresh air and use only explosion proof vent fans. The lid has beveled edges tapering so they can slide in grooves cut into the inside faces of the box's sides and one end. A carved, inset pull adds a decorative touch as well as providing a means for easy sliding of the lid. After the lumber is milled to the required thicknesses, widths and lengths, cut grooves to receive the top and bottom panels.
Next, cut the through dovetails at each corner this procedure is discussed in chapter twenty-five. Bevel the top and bottom panels and assemble the case around the bottom panel, which is left unglued so that it can expand and contract across its width in response to seasonal changes in humidity.
Complete construction by fitting plugs into the openings left at each corner at the ends of the grooves. The open top of the candlebox lid reveals the grooves the lid rides in. Make a second line on the lid's top 1 'A" from the outside edges. The bevel will connect these two lines. Plane the bevel across the end grain first so that any tearout occur- ring at the end of the plane's stroke will be removed when the adjacent bevel is formed.
Although a jack plane can be used to make this bevel, it may be nec- essary to finish with a block plane which, with its lower cut- ting angle, produces a cleaner surface across end grain. Posi- tion the stationary leg of a compass on that line halfway across the width of the lid. Draw an arc with the compass's pencil point.
Using a wide-sweep gouge, make cuts from the arc back toward the scored line. Carefully lever up chips. Once the depression has been formed, you can give the pull a smooth surface, or, as I've done here, you can give it a bit of texture. Included in the article was a sidebar in which Maloof discussed several technical issues, closing with the recipe for his finishing mix. My dad—who designed and built several of the pieces displayed in this book, including the crotch-grained chess table—began experimenting with MalooFs finish and found it wonderfully adapted to the small shop.
After years of spraying lacquer, a toxic experience inevita- bly preceded by the emotionally toxic experience of attempting to vacuum every particle of dust from every shop surface, he found in Maloof's formula a finish that not only produced a very appealing surface but also, just as importantly, was impervious to dust contamination. Preparation is no different for this finish than it would be for any other. Scrape the wood, then sand it with a variety of grits, finishing with a thorough sanding using paper no coarser than grit.
Then wipe the wood clean with a tack rag. Maloof's recipe calls for equal parts mineral spirits, boiled linseed oil, and polyurethane varnish an extra dollop of varnish seems to add body to the dried film. Brush on this mixture liberally with only minimal concern for drips and runs—coverage is the focus at this stage.
Allow the finish to set until it gets a bit tacky. Depending on temperature and relative humidity, this could be anywhere from ten to sixty minutes. Wipe the surface with clean rags to remove any excess that has failed to penetrate into the wood.
As the finish dries, it lifts wood fibers and hardens them producing a rough texture. This first coat acts as a sanding sealer. Again, depending on temperature and relative humidity, this could take anywhere from one to three days. In humid Ohio, I've found it best to wait three days before sanding that first coat.
Otherwise, areas of raised, roughened grain may not make their appear- ance until after the last coat has dried. The thinner clots the re- moved material into a slurry which may help to smooth the surface; however, my reason for dunking the paper in mineral spirits is to unload the grit in order to get more mileage out of each piece of sandpaper. Once you have sanded and thoroughly cleaned the surface with a tack rag, apply a second coat of the three- part mixture.
It is particularly important that this coat and any subsequent coats be wiped clean. Any residue remaining on the surface will dry there and leave a roughened area. Sam Maloof tops this finish with a layer or two of boiled linseed oil into which he's mixed enough shaved beeswax to achieve the consistency of cream.
He applies the wax, allows it to dry, then buffs it out. You can achieve similar effects with a number of commercially prepared waxes. This can be fabricated from any scrap that can be glued together to make up a sufficient thickness.
This is then band sawn and sanded to the inside profile of the finished box. Undercut the face of the bending form at one point to allow for the thickness of the lapped material underneath the box's glue joint. Screw a thin strip of metal I used a scrap of aluminum siding to the form underneath which an end of the sidewall material should be inserted prior to being wrapped around the form. At this time, saw a clamping caul see photos, below with a slightly greater radius than the bending form from scrap material.
This caul will protect the sidewall material from the clamps. The next consideration is the sidewall material itself. There are three possibilities. I would recommend using one of the new waterproof glues between the lamina- tions, although I have built boxes using regular aliphatic resin glue to bond the thicknesses of veneer. Then, soak the sidewall stock in a tub of cool water for twenty-four hours; dunk it briefly in warm water and take it directly to the bending form.
Tuck one end of this softened, plasticized material under the metal strip on the bending form. Wrap the remaining length around the form and secure in place with clamps and the caul. Four or five days later, remove the sidewall material from the form and cut the profile of the lap joint.
A bench extension to which is nailed a piece of scrap sawn to the inside radius of the box simplifies the cutting of the joint.
Then, glue the lap, wrap the sidewall material around the form once again and clamp with the aid of the caul. This time, however, do not insert the end of the sidewall material under the form's metal strip. The clamping caul is visible on the right. A lap joint is be- ing cut on the bench extension. Here, the glued lap joint is being clamped with the aid of the caul. Notice that the end of the sidewall material is not positioned under the metal strip as it was during its initial clamping for shape.
Screw a faceplate to a band-sawn turning blank with large y sheet metal screws. Then, install it on the lathe.

Purchasing plans will not only give you all the information to complete the project but will also either list the tools required or give you the information like the plans and cutting lists where you can create your own list of tools required. If you are unable to list them yourself, you can print the plans out and take to your local hardware or tool store and have one of the staff at the store assist in getting the tools that you require. The Woodworker Treasure Chest by Sawdust Addict is an example of where you can buy woodworking project plans in the one place. Like Woodworkers Treasure Chest, Teds Woodworking Plans has put together a large selection of woodworking project plans to choose from. Once you purchase the plans, they then have some handy upgrades and further resources that you can add to your purchase. Etsy provides a platform online where people are able to sell items online.
