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. :)

Very nice! I’m guessing when you were a kid, you were an expert playing the Operation game.
