This is a Project combining Scroll Saw Work, Box Making and Wood Carving.

Step one was to run the timber used for the body of the box (Australian Cedar) through the Planer/Thicknesser to square it off at 30mm thickness. The next step was to prepare the block for cutting on the Scroll Saw. You will notice that the corners of the Box are not mitre joints.

The sides of the box are 5mm thick and this is acheived by drilling a hole that the Scroll Saw blade will fit through and very carefully sawing the inside timber. The corner curves were drawn using an Australian 20 cent coin as a template. The bottom of the box (NSW Scented Rosewood) was then glued in place.

The lid was carved using Palm tools, sandpaper and elbow grease.

The final stage was to glue the carved box top to the rosewood lid and then to glue the lid to the inner section that prevents sideways movement of the completed cover. The photo shows the thickness of the lid which does away with hinges and catches.
