Bowl/Basket Scroll Saw Pattern.

The pattern comes in two sizes.

This pattern is cut from 1/4" thick wood. I used Baltic birch plywood for the prototype but a nice hardwood will work fine and look a little nicer.

The bowl is 7.5" in diameter. There is only one interior cut so it is pretty easy to cut. It is a bit fiddly to glue up. 

I also included a large pattern that is 15" in diameter. You will need 1/2" thick wood for that pattern. It is large enough to be a table centerpiece. The upper rim of the bowl pattern is broken up over four pages and will need to be cut out and taped together.

Heritage Wood Specialties:

 Boards packaged in plastic wrap for moisture control.

Disclaimer: Let me start this by saying that Heritage Wood Specialties supports my blog in exchange for advertising. I do not take cash. They supply me with boards. I do it that way so I can keep up with the quality they are sending out.

In the photos above you see my favorite Heritage Wood products. Glued up wood panels. These are 12" wide and 16" long. You can get them in 1/8" through 3/4" thicknesses. I get the 1/4" and 1/2" boards because they are what I use most often with my scroll saw.

They call this product Scroll Saw Blanks. Heritage does an excellent job of color matching the glue-ups as you can see on the maple and walnut boards in the photos.
