The original pattern was for a much larger bandsaw box, but I don't have a bandsaw. So, I shrunk the pattern until it would fit the scrollsaw. I'm using the Flying Dutchman FD-Cor No 3 blade. Just had a thought, I'm going to put a small magnet under the pin and a short metal rod in the pin. This will help hold the pin in place.

Excellent adaptation...magnet idea will be a nice touch.

If you're planning to incorporate these into your product line, I'd suggest you have several made in advance...these will sell like hot-cakes IMHO.

Will make very unique gift boxes for jewelry.

Yeah, I've got several orders already, shipping cost is likely going to be a deterrent. This one presold to a coworker before he even saw a finished product. :)

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
