This small fretwork basket is 7 1/2" long and 5" deep. It is designed with slot and tab construction for easy assembly. I used 1/4" poplar but you could use 1/4" Baltic Birch ply with good results also. Because the opposing sides are identical you can save a lot of time by stack cutting.
This pattern would lend itself to enlarging. You could double the size and use 1/2" thick stock for a more substantial basket.
I need some help answering a few emails I have received lately. What brands and models of scroll saws are popular outside the United States? I have this question from South America, Europe, Asia and Africa. If you have a few minutes and could drop me an email I would be grateful and you might be able to help some new scrollers get started in the hobby.
