Coal box



  During the industrial revolution in the UK and other countries coal was a very common thing to use at home, for heating and cooking. Coal was stored in coal boxes that had a special shape and could be simple and humble or decorated and more expensive. Here we present a very cute wooden coal box that you can make with the scroll saw. Nobody uses these boxes today to store coal, but this box is definitely very interesting and will add an attractive decorative touch to any room.

   The pattern is based on an old English design from the beginning of the XX century. It has been completely redrawn in the computer using the most advanced graphics techniques.

 The pattern is printed to make the coal box with 1/8, 3/8 and 1/2 inches wood or with 3, 9 and 12 mm. wood, but of course it can be resized at will. This table gives the measures of the coal box depending on the wood thickness you use:

  Height Width Depth
1/8, 3/8 and 1/2  in. wood 13.4 in. 13.6 in. 16.4 in.
3, 9 and 12 mm. wood 32 cm. 32.7 cm. 39.4 cm.
4, 12 and 16 mm. wood 42.7 cm. 43.6 cm. 52.5 cm.

 The size of the model is limited only by the skills of the scroller and the available tools.

 Please note that this pattern is registered and copyrighted. If you would like to have it I offer it for 13 plus shipping. The pattern is computer made, which provides total precision, and nicely printed for convenient scrolling. Click here to buy this pattern. Write me to info@finescrollsaw.com for any questions.
