I really like the design of this. The way it stands. Looks like a minature piece of furniture. Good job!

Nice job disguising your entry cut, going with the grain, instead of against it.

cplant, it sounds like a potential opportunity to get some good scraps at no charge. You could possibly start an entire line of bandsaw boxes around that. Letting the scraps help dictate the shape of the boxes as you’ve done here would keep it interesting and hopefully lend a good amount of variation and uniqueness to each piece. Some people are also really into the salvaged, reused items as well.

Now that you’ve made your first BS box, I’ll be curious to see what you come up with in the future, and how you put your salvaged scraps to good use.
