June, 2009—Band saw boxes don’t have to be free form. I enjoyed making these boxes out of various wood scraps. The sizes of the boxes were simply dependent on the size of the wood I had on hand. These would make nice gift boxes for pens, or small and expensive tools. I made one that had a slide-off lid, but I think the boxes with the pull off lids look nicer.

Looks great. I was thinking about making a square box with a hinged lid. Maybe now that project will get put on the back burner until I have enough hardwood scraps. =)

Great group of boxes. Love the wood choices. Lots of scrap got used here. Also like the slanted handles. More style then normal rectangles or knobs.

Great designs and great builds.

Keep it up.

Very cool work, neighbor. I save every interesting looking scrap I run across hoping that I’ll get some shop time to myself one day soon.

Nice stuff.

The reddish wood in the first two boxes is unknown. It was from the scrap pile at my local hardwood lumber yard. (He sells scraps for $2 per pound.) It is sandwiched in between wood from an old kitchen cutting board. The third box is sapeli, with an aspen lid. The fourth box is sapeli with a pine lid. The last two are poplar sides, with pressure-treated pine centers (!!). Obviously pressure treated lumber is not good, but I was in a box-making mood and some scraps were handy. :-)
