I made this octagon-shaped wood bowl/basket on my bandsaw out of a 1 foot square piece of 1×12 pine. I’ve seen other ones made with a scroll saw, so I wanted to try to make one with a bandsaw. Below are links to my PDF template if you would like to try it, as well as my video of this project.

You know Steve, I have made a ton of the scrolled basket/bowls and after making lots of bandsaw boxes, I have never thought of using the BS like you did. I found by using hard woods, they were not as fragile.
