This design comes from a book by Diana Thompson. It was made from walnut with yellowheart used for the blossom. It is a four piece box design cut on the scroll saw. The box was originally cut for 1-1/4” depth, but was definitely beyond my skill level, pushed too hard, dull blade, too slow a speed. The cutout from the inside was so far from vertical that when I drilled from the top on the outside of the box, the bit came through the inside of the box. So I started the box portion a second time with 3/4” stock and a little more patience.
My mother receives it today as a birthday gift, it seems to have a lot of appeal, because I have multiple requests from others for the same box.
-- All the test cuts in the world won't stop you from cutting the outside when you meant to cut the inside. doh!
