I once heard you can become addicted to making band saw boxes. WARNING …. It’s TRUE !!!
Cut from Red Cedar this little project just kept growing. From the beginning I planned on making a heart shaped box. After cutting the larger box, I had the waste piece from the inside just sitting on the bench staring at me. Soooo … I sanded the piece and cut a second box that nests nicely inside the first. Once again there was a waste piece too small to get another box out of so I simply rounded the edges with a rasp and finished into a heart shaped trinket that nests inside the second box. After sanding and finishing all the pieces, the inside of the boxes were lined with flocking fibers from Fowl Flockers. If you have not tried flocking, worry not. It is very easy and really adds a lot to your finished box.
Thanks for looking …. enjoy!
