Default Wooden ribbon boxes

Iíve been wantingimg_0936.jpgimg_0934.jpg to try one of these for awhile. I finally got some time. They turned out pretty nice and I learned a thing or two along the way. Both boxes are maple, one has a cherry bow and ribbon, the other one is Purple Heart and white ash.

Beautiful!!! They came out very well. There is a learning curve to them. I too have been wanting to try a few of these. If I dabble I may be calling on you for advice. Thanks for showing.

Quick question, did you scroll the ribbons or use a bandsaw??

Scroll saw for the internal and bandsaw for the outside profile and then final shaping with a spindle sander and a disc sander. I could have used my scroll saw for it all, but Iím better with a bandsaw.

How did you make the bows? Steam bending? Could we have a tutorial on it? Thanks for sharing those beautiful boxes.

They are laminated and cut on edge. A teardrop shape with the center cut out.

Thanks. Being I am a scroller I would go all scrollsaw. That is a nice combination with the purple heart. Should look great too.
