Dat Medalion Box
« on: June 08, 2011, 03:00:55 PM »
I wasn't quite sure How I want to handle my creations any more. I post them on my blog and I don't have more than 10 comments over a 6 month period. I love to share, and I LOVE to do, and I would just like a little of the share part back leave your link so I can see or anything really, Just let me know you were there. OK I will quit wining and get on with the sharing part.

I am real proud of this one it tickles my fancy alot. I know the design is good but if you have any suggestions about the build that I should change or do differently PLEASE speak  up

Wow, very pretty. You will be teaching us soon. I sure wish I had time today to cut this box out.

As to the lack of comments on a blog, I think most of use have felt the same at some stage. I think it is just good manners to say thank you if you download anything from a site. As people are anonymous on the internet I think many think it is acceptable to forget their manners. I stopped blogging as a few people copied my tutorials and posted them as their own and didn't even bother to leave a comment. Yes, this is my pet peeve. Most of us are not seeking praise but acknowledgement would be nice. Okay, I will get of my soap box now.

Butterfly, I'm with you.  I can have 200 or so downloads of one file and get 2 or 3 thank yous including CraftCrave who posts me on their site.

I don't understand it either.  

Your box looks great in the picture.

So I posted a picture of my box on my facebook page there a few relatives who are really interested most of the time in what I am doing. So i get a call from my daughter this morning and she is raving about it, I tell her I'll make you a couple, and get this she says,...."Well Mom I love your design but can Dad make me a box out of wood with it?" That man can't use a scroll saw, I know I have watched him try being afraid of the way he was going at it he was gonna burn it up for me, Let alone what he does to blades.

So I decided to just go cover up with a ream of paper and use a roll of vinyl for a pillow and take a nice long nap

RFLMAO I could just visualise the pair of you, not that I have a clue what you look like. It would have been funny to see. I have to agree with your daughter and the box would look stunning cut out of wood. Do you use a scroll saw? I was hoping to start learning to use more tools this year but I am a wuss when it comes to tools with blades.

Michaels sells thin wood (think heavy cardstock) that you can cut it out of and glue it to one you make from card stock. It is just like the lamenent they put on furniture nowadays to make cheap wood look expensive.(cherry, mahogony etc.)  You can even stain it the colour you want. Just cut the top and sides seperately. Then you could tell your daughter "hey who needs dad to do it you got me" LOL It would also look really good if you did the cut out one colour in seperate pieces and glued them to a solid box of another colour. So many possibilities with this one nice going.
I actually have big sheets that my father had bought from home depot when he was doing cabinets. It is a lot less expensive to buy there but a pain to cut to size for use with my cricut. They sometimes have a section where they cut the wood for you that has reminents from other cuts that you can buy cheap.

Thank You Mrb4fun, I have been going to try using veneer for a long time , But for some reason I haven't gotten around to it yet.

That  is the Puzzling part about DD remark she knows that takes the scroll saw and her dad does not use MY saw. That is my baby. The one time he did use it I almost had a nervous break down, The smell of burning wood filled the air where he was trying to rush the cut or make the turn and he kept letting up on the wood and the chatter of the piece was deafening. "I told him you paid good money to buy me that saw for christmas (and he did it was top of the line a Ryobe with a 15 in. throat) leave it alone or you will be replacing it!"

A nice inexpensive way to make a stain varnish mix in any color you want
Acrillic Paint added to mod podge and use a bit of water to thin it down

How lovely.  We will always be happy to see your creations AND leave feedback.  I, too, have a blog that has had over 400 hits, but less than a handful of comments.  I want to hear what people think, but finally stopped waiting for it.  KWIM??

It's a gorgeous box, really lovely :)

As to people leaving comments, let alone a thankyou — it seems it's most often a case of grab & run! I find I'm blogging less & giving away less these days . . .

think the box is stunning - great work - the idea of my husband near any kind of power tool is horrific - he doesnt even know the difference between a wrench and a plunger - very impressed
