This is a teeny scroll saw box cut out of a piece of birds eye maple. The box is about the size of a dime and has a turned brass knob and flocked inside the drawer.It measures .450” x.700”x.700”deep. I don’t think it is big enough to fit a tooth- maybe a baby tooth. Anyway I saw Steve’s challenge and thought I’ll get in on it. I’m not much of a scroll sawyer and less yet when I can’t hardly hold onto the piece. This is as small as I go!!
Thanks to Doug Scott for the board. ..................Jim

That’s pretty neat little box. How did you hollow out the drawer?

Made one just like this the other day. The drawer was about the same size, although the outside is maybe a tweak bigger. Good job! beat that Steve!

Hi Pete. I was worried abut losing it too, so I put in it my Abdel grease box so it can fall out anywhere.

Hi Dan, that box was so hard to hold onto that I knew I’d never hod the drawer without it running the saw through my finger, so I milled it with a 3/32 cutter in the mill- a whole lot saver. One thing I did on the box was to leave it as part of a larger piece of wood when I cut out the drawer. I have arthritis in both hands and cannot hold small things very well any more. I guess I can never be a brain surgeon!! Ha Ha!!!!!

Hi Phil, that Steve has a way to challenge me and he gets me to do it every time!! He is hoot to watch in his Videos. I have that same Ryobi router that he used in hes last one.
