Downloaded this free plan from the web. Measures 7 in. L x 4.75 in. W x 3.25 H. It consists of layers of wood shaped out with a scroll saw, a router and drum/disk sander. I finished it with clear gloss lacquer. I intend to line the inside with felt. In the meantime, I just painted it red.

Turned out to be a very nice oval box. Never tried my hands on scroll saw but getting interested now because of this project. Ang ganda Ed.

I used the scroll saw. Yet on second thought I could have done it just as well with a jigsaw. The reason is that the box consists of 5 layers of board marked with a template and individually sawn. Three middle boards were hollowed out while the top and bottom left solid. I glued the middle boards together first and sanded the inside only. Then I glued the bottom permanently and top temporarily with double sided foam tape then sanded the outside. The final shape was attained by sanding. The round edges were done with a router but also could have been done with a spokeshave and sanding. Here is the link in case you are interested.
