With the fall fair season rapidly approaching I’ve been doing a lot of different styles of boxes. This one is cut from maple and purpleheart and finished with several coats of clear lacquer. It measures ~3” Deep x 5” X 5” and was entirely cut on the scrollsaw. The pattern is from the book by Gary MacKay, Boxes for the Scrollsaw.

Great looking little box. “entirely cut on the scroll saw” certainly adds a degree of dificulty…

that is wonderful. The colours really make this “over the top”. I can’t believe you did it all on the scroll saw! Amazing

That’s a very original looking box. You sure are a heck of a lot better on a scroll saw than I am. I think your project should take the blue ribbon.

I’m sorry Kevin….. Boy do I feel stupid. I checked out your previous projects and this box might have been one of your easiest projects. You sure do know how to work a scroll saw. All your projects look great man.
