I realized that layered scroll sawn boxes have been around for a while, but I still love them! I haven’t seen many new designs lately and I thought it would be the perfect style to make some pretty Damask styled boxes for the upcoming Valentine’s holiday.

My box is made of hard maple and walnut accents. I made two lid designs to be included with this pattern – one a classic Damask style pattern that could easily be embellished with some pretty crystal rhinestones and the other a monogram with Damask accents, so you can personalize it for the recipient. I included two full alphabets in the pattern so that one can either scroll the letter into the lid directly, as I did in my example, or create a thin overlay letter in a contrasting wood.

The box is finished with several light coats of spray lacquer, which is my favorite finish for hard woods. It give a nice, sheen to it without looking plastic or fake.

The box measures about 5” in diameter and is about 1.5” deep. You can also vary the depth by adding or subtracting rings or using different thicknesses of scrap wood.

The pattern is available on my website in PDF and paper format.

I hope you like it. :)

+1 Martyn—says it all! Plus, ordered plans this morning and received back in less than 5-minutes. Outstanding service and the plans are great. Thanks Sheila, and best wishes with this pattern.

Thanks L/W. I figure if people enlarge it then they can add more rings for height. :)

Thanks for your kind words.

I love the detail on these boxes. The damask cuts are one of my favourite. I agree with L/W, the height adjustment is perfect!

Thank you so much Anna! They have been very popular. I think I have a good formula going. I expect I will be making more of this style. :)
