Cut out the pieces

Copy the pattern and attach it to the wood with temporary-bond spray adhesive. Saw around the perimeter of the butterfly using the band saw with a 1/4" blade. Note:

do not cut the wood between the antennae at this time as this piece will be extremely fragile.

Resaw the lower 3/8" from the butterfly cutout. This will be glued on as the box bottom during assembly. Cut the wings from the body as indicated on the pattern and label each one right and left. Resaw the top 1/4" from each wing and label them as well. Next, cut the interior cavities from each wing, also labeling them.

Make the lids

Transfer the locations of the interior cavities onto the underside of the lids. Resaw the top 3/8" of the cavity pieces for the tenons which will fit into the interior cavities and keep the lids in place. Glue and clamp the tenons to the lids.

Final shaping and assembly

Resaw the antennae to about 1/2" thick. Turn the box upside down so that the antennae are supported by the table and remove the area between them.

Round over the top edges of the body and each lid using the router and Dremei Mototool. Glue and clamp the bottom onto the wings and body of the box {see the Exploded View Drawing).

Sand as needed and finish as desired. Flock the interior cavities according to manufacturer's instructions, jfj
