Chain in a box

Post by doglegg » Fri Jul 19, 2019 1:33 am

Kinda going slow but working on a chain in a box. Interesting concept as you have to keep the chain tight. Fun project, just getting started.

That's really cool. I've done some chains but none like that. I really like that one. ___Dave

Finally got back to my chain in a box. I was having trouble separating the links as there was no room to get to them. Finally settled on a little piece of coping saw blade. (it helped me cope) Need to clean up the links some and the hearts. Maybe some type of wheel in the base. Nothing special but I have enjoyed it. Thanks for looking.

Awesome job! My brain can't even process doing that; although, I could probably pull off the giant molar, on top ::tu:: ::tu:: ::tu::

Thanks Skip. ::handshake::
And that shows my true whittling skills Doc. A heart that looks more like a molar. I may just go with molar and see what turns out. Thanks Doc. ::handshake::
TPK, they would all be old before I got through. ::tounge::

That turned out nice. ::tu:: It must have took a lot of patience to carve.
To bad we live so far apart or I'd come over and have you show me how to whittle out a chain. I have a piece cut in a + shape but I think it's to small for my first try at one.
