Scroll Saw storage box

Post by lockeyone »

Here is a project I did today. It is made out of a wood core commercial door material. I have some old doors the were replaced from a remodel. The scroll saw is something I occasionally need in my job on site and it gets abused. So, I wore out my last one and a friend was going to toss this one out so I took it. This replacement saw wouldn't fit in the toolbox I used to use so I decided to build one. The box was drawn in other software and the dxf imported in VCarve. The box looked so nice I decided to put my logo on it and I'll be sure to display it while working on site. The handle is a door pull removed from somewhere (I can't seem to throw anything out). The hinges are from the standard size doors. The latch is a window lock. The only problem with making projects with this door material is there are gaps in the inner wood core. I tried some filler materials and it is ok but not the same as having solid/tight wood. Really has nice veneer on it. To think this was saved from the dumpster.

My son stopped by while I was doing the logo and I told him I added the date for the benifit of the kids. So when they are dividing up my estate they have a clue what I was doing on 5/07.

Now I have proof for the IRS that I bought this for my business.

Lockeyone,

WOW, I am impressed. Very nicely done, and all from recycled cast-offs to boot.

BTW, isn't that power tool officially classified as a "jig saw" rather than a scroll saw?


Either way excellent work,
HayTay

Well, maybe, the blade does turn on this that is why I called it a scroll.

Great job! The vcarving & painting is really clean & crisp. Can you tell us what type of paint mask you used? Thanks for posting the photos.

The paint masking it the basic stuff from 3M and I bought it off ebay, partial roll. I did have a little bleed and I used a soft rag and mineral spirits to lighty clean up some edges. I clear coated everything before the colors were sprayed on with cheap paint from the local hardware store.

Nice work. Everything from the use of scrap materials, the design, and the personnalized touch of the script.

Wow! That was one 'professional' job! :P

Good work and I especially like the front of the case. Very well done. Your case has made a 'fine' home for the throw away! :)
