I made this basket weave scrolled box from pine and birch plywood for the rings. There are 9 layers, not counting the ring spacers. The idea of creating a realistic looking basket weave project on the scroll saw has been around a while. I decided to use stain to make it seem more south western looking or perhaps resemble a first nations design. I probably should have used hardwood, but the these things always produce a lot of left over wood which hangs around forever, and this wood was free. The most time spent by far was the staining which was done with a fine brush to get in to the small areas. I used water-based stain and shellac The box is 6 inches round and 3 1/2 inches high.
Thanks for looking.
