This project is from a book I bought a few months ago The Best of Scroll Saw Magazine Creating Wooden Boxes Published by Fox Chapel Publishing.
The body is cut from a solid block of Walnut, the bottom & lid is Maple. The flat & wavy ribbons are laminated from Purple heart & Cherry then cut out on the scroll saw. The ribbon bows are laminated Cherry, Purple heart & maple then cut on the scroll saw. Finished with Danish Oil.
Thanks for viewing.

Very pretty. Obviously you know how a scroll saw works.

Excellent box. I imagine sanding those delicate curved ribbons is difficult. I have a hard time getting my scroll saw to cut in a straight line even in thin material, so good job.
