Inlaid boxes - Woodworking Crafts Magazine -; Make a Lily Pad Box. Make a Lily Pad Box Photos by Rob Brown I started by selecting quarter-cut material I could dress down to a blank 1-1/4" thick, 4" wide and about 15" long.

Make a Lily Pad Box

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. Overall Shape – With the lid, main and bottom layers temporarily fixed together, cut the shape of the boxes out on a scrollsaw. Create the Walls – After marking the walls at 3/16" thick, Brown drilled a pair of insertion holes in the main section of the box and cut the cavity.Start to re-assemble Align the lid with the center section of the box and wrap masking tape around the outer edges, to keep the two parts firmly, and temporarily, together.
