This is a new pattern I created for a pattern packet. It is a collapsible candy dish made with the scroll saw. It is made from 3/4” Maple and measures about 8” x 6”. It is great for little candies or M & M’s left out on a coffee table or as a small gift. I love doing these dishes because they are quick and easy and lots of fun. I finished it with pure mineral oil. The second picture shows how it looks flattened for storage. Thanks, Sheila

These are both really pretty, Sheila…
I honestly didn’t know that “collapsible” could be cut in a continuous spiral… I’ve never tried one, and the ones that I’ve seen were a series of nested shapes… What a Great Idea!! Thanks!!

Thanks, everyone! You are right, it is never too early to start thinking about Christmas. When I first made these Mike, I was amazed at how flexible they really are being cut this way. The hardest thing about designing Christmas stuff in June is finding pretty Christmas candy to put in them. The mints were really not great and were kind of melting in the sun when I was trying to take the picture. I will have to make a note to myself next year to stock up on some extra candy and trimmings to save for summer! :)

Nice design. My wife would like that one. What keeps it pulled up when it is full of candy?

It locks into place because when you cut the spiral, you bevel the saw a few degrees. It stays pretty tight. :)
