Is the llid done with a scroll saw? Where did you get the pattern. I like it, very clean and neat looking. Good work.

Most of the box was done with the scroll saw. The lid pattern was cut with the scroll saw, and the walls were cut with the scroll saw as well. I also used my band saw and my miter saw to cut the top/bottom/sides to the right dimensions.

I got the pattern here:

I used a piece of 1/4 inch stock for the lid and bottom, then cut the box walls out of one piece of 1” thick oak. I cut a ring inside a ring, if that makes senseā€¦ the outer ring is the outer wall (the inner ring and outer ring are 1/4” thick). I used the inner ring to make a seat for the box lid to sit in. I took the inner ring to the band saw, and cut that to about 1/4”, and glued it to the lid bottom. It fits perfectly inside the outer ring.

Hope that make sense and hope that helps.

Steve Good has a lot of good patterns and they’re usually things you can make in just a few hours.

I think he’s also a member here on LJ. so feel free to email him if you have any questions.

Triviasteve – Yes that makes sense! Thanks for the info and for pointing out Steve Good’s blog. Looks like lots of useful patterns and knowledge there. I’ve only done a couple scroll saw projects, but would like to try more sometime.

Have your say...
