Christmas Nativity Box

This is my latest cutting that I just finished today. This will be one of the center pieces of my display and the Richardson Senior Center Craft Fair. A Christmas Nativity box, lined inside. This type of cutting must have a lining because the cuts in the walls and top are to fragile by themselves. The box can be used for holiday berries, Christmas cards or many other uses. I hope you enjoyed looking at it.

This is a Steve Good pattern and can be found on his WEB-Site. I did modify the pattern some. It had a crown on Mary’s head and, to me, that is not correct – so I removed it.

Very, very nicely done—most attractive! Although, I personally would have preferred a hallo for Mary.

Jerrels, very nice job on the scroll work. You might try making the box and then applying the scroll work. Bob and I made this box and it turned out well.

With a little planning, you could oversize the scroll work slightly and then trim it to size after it is applied.

This is another technique. (Zoom and go to image #5.) In this case the scroll work is thicker and has a piece of veneer applied to the back. White glue was applied to the scroll work, dried, and then the veneer was stuck on with a hot iron. The scrolled top is inset just like the bottom of the box.

Keep boxing and keep posting.

Flawless scroll saw work! Really nice pattern and the idea is flowing. Astounding box!
