Scroll-Sawn Jewelry Box
The elegant patterns on this box are first cut out with a scroll saw. Then the panel is glued to a backer board for a unique, almost-carved look.
Carved boxes always intrigue me. It’s not what’s inside — it’s the small details and the craftsmanship that make them irresistible. Show me a carved box, and I just have to pick it up and give it a closer look. I’ve always wanted to make a carved box, but there’s been a hitch. I haven’t done much carving. So when I set out to design this jewelry box, I tried to get around this by giving it the “look” of a carved box — without the carving. The solution wasn’t difficult. I created thin scroll-sawn panels for the sides of the box. -These are backed up with solid panels. The end result doesn’t look like a typical scroll saw project. It looks more like it’s been carved.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
