Large Potpourri Box Scroll Saw Pattern.

Download the Pattern Below

This large Potpourri box is seven inches in diameter. It is cut from 1/4" and 1/8" Baltic birch plywood. If you like the smell of potpourri then this box is large enough to hold a good amount. The slots between the slats are large enough to keep the potpourri in but let the odor out.

I taped off the lid and spray painted the top surface red to add some color and contrast. As I look at it I think I should have used green paint but I guess it's okay.

You will greatly speed up this project by stack cutting. There are 17 slats that are cut from 1/8" BB ply so those are definitely candidates for stack cutting. You could also stack cut the top ring and the bottom including the holes for the slats. Before you cut the inner part of the top ring, remove the bottom.

Another tip is to use the inner cutout of the top ring for the lid keeper. You just have to be careful where you drill your entry hold and make it as small of a hole as possible.

INFORMATION: I also included a pattern for wider stats. These slats will reduce the gaps and make it a box for holding other items.

Parts needed to be cut. Use stack cutting whenever possible.
