Design for the top

18lrg.jpgThe suggested design for the top:

The word money was cut out using a Hegner/fret saw. This is a saw with a dual-tilt table, 400-1700 RPM variable speed motor, sawdust blower and work piece hold-down as standard equipment, the Hegner 18″ Variable Speed Scroll Saw continues to be our most popular model. Compact, quiet, precise and versatile, it lets you cut almost any material and make a wide variety of projects.

Each of the letters are joined together and cut out in one piece, by doing this it gives the material strength. This is a difficult piece of work and requires a lot of careful work to cut the letters out accurately. You need to put some thought into the design of your letter to allow them to be cut out and still look like the word.

The spaces in the middle of the letters were drilled and then an abra file was used to create the required space.

Once the letters or shapes are cut out they need to be glued onto the lid of the box with PVA Glue. This is a water based glue and any extra glue should be cleaned off as quickly as possible.

Design for the handle.
