MIXED NUT BOXES

 In American Woodworker Blog

THE HAZEL NUT ,ALMOND AND WALNUT BOX. HAZEL NUT AND ALMOND TOOK SOME TIME TO DO AS I USED  MINITURE  PIN HINGES AND A LARGE MAGNIFY GLASS. WALNUTS WERE A BIT  EASIER AS I USED MINI HINGES. WHEN THEY ARE ALL CLOSED THEY ARE HELD SHUT BY MAGNETISM.AS 5 PIECE WALNUT PUZZLE I COATED EDGES WITH FINE IRON FILINGS THEN  MAGNERTISED THE BOX. NOW THEY SHUT.STILL UNABLE TO GET A BRAZIL NUT? SOME HOW I HAVE NOT SEEN ONE IN THE SHOPS.TILL I DO WILL MAKE ONE . THE WALNUTS I HAVE YET TO LINE WITH EITHER VELVET OR FELT…REASON I MADE MORE WALNUTS IS THAT WHEN PEOPLE SEE THEM THEY ALWAYS WANT ONE. BUT ALAS I RUN OUT OF WALNUTS. TILL I SEE MORE IN THE SHOPS WILL BUY SOME.AS I SAID BEFORE THESE ARE EASY TO MAKE IF YOU HAVE THE PAITENCE.. THESE NUTS ARE IN UNFINISHED STATE.AS I HAVE YET TO SAND AND FINISH THEM OFF..!! BEFORE I LINE INSIDE THEN PART COVER OUTSIDE WITH 9CT GOLD AND STERLING SILVER  LEAF PAPER.. .BUT ONCE DONE THEY AS ALWAYS WILL BE UNIQUE ..
