Default couple of pieces

first scroll saw work I have done in 11 years, and also, these are the first basket weave type pieces I have ever done.

first is a small basket/box. a Steve Good pattern, but I used 7 rings of 1/4 inch stock (alternating aspen and red oak) rather than 3 3/4 rings as suggested in the pattern. I am currently working on another one because my wife took it to work with her and one of the ladies where she works asked me to make one for her.

next piece is another Good pattern, that I added to. My 12 year old son wanted me to make this for him to give to his girlfriend for her birthday tomorrow. Body is 3 1/2 inch layers of aspen. top ring and bottom are red oak. I then used a piece of 1/4 aspen and cut out her name in a ribbon, and backed it up with the cut out from the top ring, making it a small box rather than an open basket.

He says he hopes she will like it, I told him that when he gives it to her at school, the other girls and even some of the teachers will be jealous, lol!


I appologize for pic quality and size. they are cell phone pics. and I really have no idea why one of the pics is smaller than the other two

I am fascinated by people who can "tweak" a pattern and make it their own - SUCH a lovely job on both pieces! I really need to go (again) to Steve's site and get that basket pattern, and I suspect I will do just what you did with it. GREAT STUFF!

I made a couple more pieces today, Steve's patterns again.
a smaller basket/box that my 9 year old daughter liked, and a small baby doll cradle that she liked.
Will get pics later.

Cool thing is, while going through a box of old patterns that had been packed away for over 10 years, I came across 4 intarsia projects that I had never completed. One just needs to be assembled, 1 needs to be finished shaped then assembled. One has be rough shaped, now needs sanding and assembled, and one has only been cut out, but nothing else.

Looks like I need to get the dremel tool and flapwheel sanders dug out and get to work on them sometime soon.

I can't believe how much fun I am having again...

I don't know how to copy links with my phone, but, go to Untitled Document
Then click on pattern catalog, then baskets and boxes section.

There are about 30 patterns or so in that section

I was home sick from work today, so I spent a little time at the saw. Wish it could have been more, but my body wouldn't let me sit there for very long.

Anyhow, I cut the pcs for another basket, and I glued up yet another basket that I had already cut. WHen time allows (when my head and body feel better) I will take some pics and post up.

I have to say, cutting these basket weave type pieces is rather enjoyable and relaxing

I went over to Steven's site and went through all of the baskets files and I can't find that pattern either.

Great cutting!!!!

I have cut two of his baskets recently. They are quite fun to do. I just need to put a finish on them. I am thinking about doing the heart one.
