Dolphins and dragons coffer



This is a truly impressive coffer, one of the most beautiful ones ever produced by the old Italian school of fretwork design. The pattern is based in an old Italian design from the beginning of the XX century that I have entirely reconstructed in the computer.  The pattern has been designed to use 1/4 and 1/8 inches wood or 6 and 3 mm wood. By scaling the pattern appropriately any other wood thickness can also be used. These are the measures of the coffer depending on the wood thickness you use:

  Height Width Depth
1/4 and 1/8 in. wood 9,3 in. 15,6 in. 7,4 in.
6 and 3 mm. wood 22,4 cm. 37,3 cm. 17,7 cm.

 Please note that this project require some sides to be beveled at 60 degrees. Since standard scroll saws bevel only up to 45 degrees, you will have to complete these beveled sides by hand, or using a disc sander in case you own this advanced equipment. 

 Please note that this pattern is registered and copyrighted. If you would like to have it I offer it for 9 € 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.
