Make a Lily Pad Box Photos by Rob Brown INFO: DIFFICULTY - 2/5, LENGTH/TIME - 2/5, COST - 1/5, SPECIAL TOOLS -SCROLL SAWI started by selecting quarter-cut material I could dress down to a blank 1-1/4" thick, 4" wide and about 15" long.
I was able to get three boxes out of this one blank.I wouldn't suggest starting with a shorter blank, as cutting on the table saw will get dangerous.Use a blank no larger than twice the height that your table saw blade protrudes above its surface, as the lid and bottom are removed using the table saw.
You could use flat- or rift-cut material, but you might encounter warping down the road.The piece I used was a piece of rescued curly maple firewood that had been drying for about seven years.Remove the lids and backsWith your blank cut to size, set your rip fence to 3/16", raise your blade so it will cut at least half way through the blank, and remove a layer that will be the bottoms of the boxes.
The blank will be cut while on its edge.Because the first cut only reaches half way through the blank, you'll have to flip the blank over...
