This is a scroll saw basket that I made for my mother for her 75th birthday last month. It is from a pattern by Steve Good.
All Canary wood, finished with 2 coats of natural Danish oil.

Very nice, and thank you for photo #2, I would have never guessed it was done in layers.

yes, one of the coolest things about these is how people can’t figure out how it was done.

That is a beautiful Scroll saw basket. Nice work and nice gift!
And I also would have never guess how this was done without the 2nd picture.

Now there’s a good reason to get a scroll saw!
