Open Top Fretwork Box Scroll Saw Pattern.




Download Below

This is just a general-purpose fretwork box. The interior is 5" deep and 4" X 4" wide. You could use it on a makeup table for brushes and comps or beside your chair for a fancy remote control box. 

It is cut from 1/4" thick wood and uses slot and tab assembly.

Because of the slot and tab construction, the bottom is difficult to assemble. To solve the problem you will cut one of the tabs off and glue it back in place after att the sides are attached. You will see why this is necessary while you try to assemble it.

Personalized Christmas Ornament Patterns:

I am still making good progress on ornament patterns. I should be able to get caught up today. If you have orders in the queue, keep your eye on your email inbox.



The price is $1 per name with a 5 name minimum. I keep the price as low as possible
because I want everyone to have a chance to make these ornaments for family and friends.

You only pay after you have received the order and are 
100% satisfied with the patterns. Invoice included with
the pattern email. Pay by credit card(secure Paypal), check, or cash.

The patterns will be emailed to you after they are completed.
Please allow up to a week for delivery. 

You can use last names on the ornaments if you like but remember that the more letters the more
difficult they are to cut. Ten letters and up gets pretty small. If you need to you can enlarge the patterns by 10% to make the interior cuts larger. No special characters are supported. I can get a hyphen in there but it looks odd. It has to connect the two letters so it does not just fall out.


$12 per sheet of 12 coins plus $3.50 shipping
Inlay with a 1" Forstner Bit.
The perfect way to sign your work.
