A toybox for my friend’s son. The boy is a big fan of superheroes, and thus the theme. The frame is oak. Insets and box lining are birch plywood. Scrollwork is oak plywood. Finish is natural Watco. Scrollwork is stained dark walnut.

I wish my son was more into super heros. I would love to make a set of logos as wall art for his room.

Thanks, folks. Mike, my methods can be a little goofy. I am entirely self-taught, so I’ve made it up as I went along over the years. For the logos on this box, and others, I find a black and white picture on the web, and paste it into Word. Then I scale each one to the same (similar) dimensions in Word, print them out, cut them out, trace them onto the wood, and scroll the result. I’m sure there’s a better way, but it works! Usually. :)

Super cool box! Great scroll saw designs and stain. I’m sure the kid was delighted to have it.

Have your say...
