Here is a project I finally finished. I started and stopped this one a few times. I got motivated to finish this one when a good friend fell in love with it when she saw the lid half done. The box is 7” across and 4” tall and is based on a patter called “Queen Anne Basket” from the book “Scroll Saw Basket Weave Projects”.

Thank you all for your kind comments! It is these kind words that make me want to go make another one!

As for the questions on how & what, this project was done on a scroll saw. Currently I have a Ryobi but hope to get a DeWalt this weekend.

The sides of the box are made of ¾” pine and the top, bottom, lid and handle are all made of poplar. The reason for this choice of wood was based on what I could get at Home Depot or Lowes as I have yet to find a source for woods here in central California.

I would like to make another one completely from poplar when I get my new saw. Maybe I will take pictures along the way and create a tutorial from them. What do you think?

Have your say...
