Really cool boxes. Yep, they sure look like bandsaw boxes. Great job. Read your profile. Wish I had access to scraps. You’re making good projects with them.

Cool! I can’t imagine making such small boxes with my 10 thumbs.

Great little boxes. Love the inlay. Love the Knots! they give the pieces that “one of a kind” look.
Keep it up.

Love the boxes.
I was sitting here trying to figure out how they were done. Take a block of wood; cut both ends off (1/2”?); cut remaining block it in half lengthwise; hollow out bottom half and top half on router table; glue 1/16” pieces of contrasting wood to ends that were cut off; drill holes and insert pins for top “hinge”; glue box together; shape as desired. How close did I come?
