Fretwork Basket Scroll Saw Pattern.

This fretwork basket will give you some practice in stack cutting. The ends and sides can be stack cut to save time. The one pictured was cut from 1/8" thick maple. I also included a pattern that is twice the size you can cut from 1/4" thick stock. I did not test cut the large basket. You might have to taper the bottom edge of the side pieces to get a good fit with the bottom. The small basket 5 1/2" long and 4 3/4" tall.

The construction is slot and tab so it goes together easy with no complicated clamping. It's best to cut the slots slightly under size and file them for a snug fit.
