This small chest came to mind after seeing that I had 2 pieces of hemlock fir 2×4 available and other assorted wood pieces. The main body is the fir, the legs are pieces of oak stake, and the scroll work in the lid is a piece of re-purposed old cedar fence board. The chest sits 4 in. tall by 11 in. wide by 3 1/2 in. deep.

THANK YOU! Since I’m still very new to woodworking I’m sure i did quite a few things the wrong way. But hey…it’s all a learning process right?

Very nice. In looking at your pictures I get the idea this was all cut on the Scroll Saw…is that correct?

Yes for the most part is was. The 2×4’s were cut to thickness and length on the band saw. The legs, lid knot work and the hollowing out of the 2×4’s were all done on the scroll saw :)

I like the originality of this box very much. After looking at your other projects I can see that you definitely have a talent for design, a rare thing. That should make it fun to see how your work develops over time. I expect we will see some awesome things from you before long.
