ScrollerOnline has a neat pattern to make a scroll sawn basket. It is model #17 Elegant Basket.

I bought the 1/4” thick maple from ScrollerOnline. The 1/4” red padauk came from Rockler.

As a scroll saw project, this one is easier and less time consuming to make versus intricate scroll saw patterns.

The basket can hold yarn, fruit, etc.

I finished the pieces with 2 rounds of 220 grit and polyurethane, then assembled the basket. I used yellow tite-bond glue everywhere except attaching the top. I used Nexabond CA glue to attach the top.

I think the ladies will like this one. I am making some of these for Christmas gifts.

To learn about my trials & tribulations making this basket, see my woodworking web site.

I can’t take credit for the design, the gentleman that designed it did a very nice job.
