I made 3 of these jewelry boxes. One was for my daughter in law and one was sent to a friend. The last is still in the shop waiting to be finished.
I enjoy fretwork and have many, many more projects to accomplish.

Beautiful fretwork boxes. I love the patterns. They are similar to the fretwork patterns on the Rohlfs chairs that I like to build. Do you have a good source for these types of patterns?

Thanks for the kind words all!
I do have a unique source for the patterns.
I will be posting more finished pieces as I accomplish each one, although I have a few older pieces i will post in the near future.
But lately my efforts have been on other aspects of woodworking and building my shop.

I once had a scrollsaw, but found I didn’t have the patience for it. My hat is off to you for creating this beautifully crafted box. Amazing!
