  • Intarsia Rose Box

    Created this from the Fox Chapel book. It was my first try at intarsia and I made it as a gift for my Aunt. The process was very fun, and I learned a lot!

    You did a very nice job cutting that rose. I have not seen that pattern, but have seen a few boxes made by others. Yours seems to just jump right out...

      WOW! That is a great box - bet your Aunt will be the envy of everyone she shows it to. Which book was this in?

                I think that is the Petal-perfect Rose Box By Robert Ardizzoni. It was in the issue 31 Summer 2008 Scroll Saw Woodworking and Crafts. Very nice job on it. Your aunt will love it!!

                  Thanks everyone! I got the pattern out of the Fox Chapel book called "Creating Wooden Boxes on the Scroll Saw." Here is the Amazon link to the book if you'd like to see the cover.

         Creating Wooden Boxes on the Scroll Saw: Patterns and Instructions for Jewelry, Music, and Other Keepsake Boxes (The Best of Scroll Saw Woodworking & Cra) (9781565234444): Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts: Books

                  In the book, they do the entire rose and box out of (I believe) Black Walnut. So, it is a dark brown box. Instead, I decided to make the rose out of Padauk due to it's redish color. I made the stem/thorn/leaves out of poplar and stained the with a color based stain.

                  I debated a long time whether I should use color on the leaves and stem since the rose in the book looks so beautiful. But, I wanted to be a bit unique. Oh, and my Aunt totally flipped out! She loved the box.

                    Very nice! Great job on your first, beautiful wood choices!

                    BTW... I just placed 2nd place in the State Fair of Texas wood box division with that pattern, you can see it my gallery.

                        If you can't fix it with sawdust and glue, it's not worth fixing.

                          Congratulations Jerry! I grew up and spent most of my life in Texas....and miss it! :-) Would love to visit the State Fair again.

                            Excellent job. I like that a lot. I used to live in Texas for about 20 years and wish I had gone to the State Fair a time or two. Thanks for sharing your talent with us.

                                Quote, I kept my old computer even though it was barely alive simply due to one particular program...Picassa by Google...which they removed from the market years ago. It worked like a combo photo and editing program but easier. It could take a photo and change it to a line drawing beautifully...

                                There is a free software package by GLARY Utilities by glarysoft that our local computer club uses to clean junk off do hard drives and defrag. They recommend running it monthly. You should also check for malware which most antivirus software does not prevent.

                                Actually, Jim, I'm delighted that making bowls with the scroll saw is still a viable part of the scroll saw repertoire.

                                In truth, the scroll saw part involves only the creation of the blank and the cutting of the concentric rings. That's what distinguishes scroll saw segmentation (both...
