Based on the tile box file posted here in the forum. I modified it to fit the 4 in. tile and I made the lid lip a little longer (and scalloped). I used a lasertile for the image in my . I did first use my regular HD tile with sharpies and I didn’t like it as much (could have probably tweaked it , but remembered I still had some lasertiles so I used one of those.). The box is with walnut
This was the image on reg. tile
i like that scalloped lid edge. something i need to keep in mind going forward if i do more of those.
Wow, that laser tile really made the details pop. Great project!
Yeah, it really does pop with the darks.
Just curious if anyone else made many of these tile boxes? What method did you use to glue on the top “frame”? I first tried wood glue, apparently it has literally NO adhesion between the cut edges of the lid sides and the finished of the frame top. I finally picked up some contact cement, used as directed and it appears to work like a charm (just be sure to center before attaching when using contact cement)
this is what i used. also put a little on the bottom of the tile to stick it to the lid to keep it from having any movement.
Oooo, nice box! The scalloped edge gives it a cool look.
I did not see what wood you used. Was it plywood? Very interesting also to have a boxed tile fit over a box bottom and all the more so with the design of valences, the very name setting off a great Google rabbit hole of ideas for the future.
This turned out really nice!
This is beautiful!! How do you extend the lip of the box top and scallop it??? I love this design
