Cubicle Jewellery Box I by Hypernaut Cubicle Jewellery Box I by Hypernaut
Cube shaped keepsake box with five different chip carved rosettes. Each side has a rosette with approximately 12cm in diameter carved into a basswood panel. The Lid has a hole in the center for opening. The inside is covered with red felt for protection.
I made this keep sake box as a presentation item for a lecture. Time was very short, so when the lid warped I had no more time for repairs or replacements. And afterwards I just never came around to fix it. Still it served its purpose nicely. Not perfect, but I still like the result...

Box: 20cm x 20cm
Rosette: 12cm diameter
Material: basswood; (box is stained pine)
Finish: Danish Oil

------------------------------------------------

Würfelförmige Schmuckschatulle mit fünf unterschiedlichen Kerbschnitt-Rosetten. Jede Seite weist eine Rosette von ca. 12cm auf einem Panel aus Lindenholz auf. Der Deckel hat ein Lock zum Abnehmen des Deckels. Das Innere der Schatuelle ist zum Schutz mit rotem Filz ausgeschlagen.
Ich hatte diese Schatulle als Vorführobjekt für einen Vortrag angefertigt.
Die Zeit war superknapp, und als der Deckel sich verzog, hatte ich keine Zeit mehr zur Reparatur oder um Ersatz zu fertigen. Und danach war ich leider zu faul um das zu beheben :) - seinen ursprünglichen Zweck hat es alle mal erfüllt. Ist zwar nicht perfekt, aber ich mag das Ergebnis trotz allem...

Schatulle: 20cm x 20cm
Rosette: 12cm Durchmesser
Material: Linde (Schatulle Kiefer gebeizt)
Finish: Danish Oil

Oh, I wish I had seen this earlier. This is a beautiful piece of work you have accomplished here. You've got some really crisp and clean lines in your cuts and your rosette designs are wonderful. I know you mentioned that the lid was somewhat warped, but really... this is a piece to be proud of. I think you've done really well!

In that case... I guess not... ^^;
I certainly hope I will be able to see more work from you. Like what I said, I am very impressed with what you can do with a block of wood. I think it's something more people to look at and enjoy!

Good work, very sharp cutting, you must have done chipcarving before these. I have done some chipcarving but I think my cuttings are not so clean. What knife are you using?

Thank you. Yes I had some practice with my practice boards and some minor carving projects and then I carved the big rosettes I previously uploaded.
I use a simple chip carving knife - it doesn't have a special name. Besides that, sharpness of the blade is the key factor - like with most wood working tools. So far I used knife #1 from swiss manufacturer "pfeil", but I am about to test knife #113 (consists of very hard steel) by German family company called "Dastra" - they handforge all their tools and for a really good price too! There are a few other manufacturers which produce good chip carving knives. Well it is a small and simple knife after all, so this shouldn't be too difficult to manufacture ^^
If you need any help, just ask - I am happy to point you into the right directions!
