Desk Tray with Clock or Thermometer Scroll Saw Pattern.

This is a nice quick gift you can make from some scrap wood. I do recommend a nice hardwood for the project to give is little something extra. I used purple heart and maple. This is the type of project you can easily customize. If you want to keep certain items in the desk tray just get out a ruler and make your own rectangles. Make sure you round the corners. Use a router to round over all the edges. If you don't have a router use sand paper.

Even though this is a simple project it does require precision cuts. If your rectangles are messy it will stand out like a sore thumb. Stay on the pattern line. This is good practice for being accurate. 

The project has room for a 1 7/16" clock insert. I chose to use a thermometer insert in mine. You can purchase the inserts at Bear Woods. There are several styles to choose from including floral designs.

I do recommend placing glue on rubber feet on the bottom to keep it from moving on the desk.

While you are at it make sure you sing up for Bear Woods $75 gift certificate giveaway. You can enter every day to increase your odds of winning. It's free money. Don't get left out.
