Both of my daughters birthdays are fast approaching (4 days apart) so I thought these little basket weave designed heart boxes would make cute gifts. They are made from walnut and maple and finished with three coats of clear high gloss lacquer. I got the plan from Steve Goodes website “Scrollsaw Workshop”.

Very nice! Thanks for showing how you did that. I would never have figured it out on my own. I may have to dust off the antique scrollsaw and try this for my granddaughter. Or maybe I’ll cheat and use the bandsaw and glue the entry cut closed.

Good stuff. I actually thought you used thin stips and “woveded” them together.
