This is a long form (i.e., not a 5 minute video) instructional video showing how I make very small boxes. These were made from ebony and rosewood, and have maple inlay and maple & leather interiors. I make them as ‘thank you’ type gifts.

If you want just the highlights, watch the first and last few minutes of the video.

Thank you for the video. You make great boxes.

About 10 minutes in you use a vice to hold the wood to cut with your coping saw. What kind if vice is that?

Thanks for the comments guys.

That blue vice used for cutting the inlay is made and sold by William Ng. You can buy it at his store: http://shop.wnwoodworkingschool.com/Inlay-Vise-Inlay-Vise.htm?categoryId=-1

These small boxes are beautifully made and very impressive. I didn’t watch the complete video but I watched enough to know that I will watch the whole video as soon as I get the time in the next few days. I’m putting it on my favorites list. This is very nice, Marty.

abie,no problem here. You might want to check your browser settings. Maybe if you’re running adblocker or anti-spyware programs, it might not let the video load because it thinks it’s an ad.

Marty, cool boxes and great video. thanks
