I cut this box on the scroll saw from yellow cedar. I made the wood hinges on the scroll saw (not really successfully!) and inlaid the celtic knot from mahogany. The Celtic designs on the top and side of the box were hand carved. I finished with a Danish oil.

Your comments are so kind! I enjoy combining scroll sawing techniques with carving. And Rich, the recipes are pretty good! I was a Home Economics teacher in Ireland many years ago so cooking is another hobby!

Anna, welcome to Lumber Jocks. This is a great project. In one small box there are a lot of things going on. The breadboard sides are a nice touch, add an accent, and subtly pull the design elements together. The carving is interesting and the inlay is beautifully done. The indented lift is functional and doesn’t detract from the carvings and inlay. The hinges are in character with the rest of the work. Looks like you are working on lots of ideas at once, and they turned out well. Thanks for sharing your work with us. Keep boxing and keep posting.

Thanks Al for your kind comments. My wooden hinges need improvement but I was happy since it was my first attempt at making them.
