Little Boxes

Wanted to come up with a new box design that would require the use of my new bandsaw. Came up with this. Smaller box is made from pieces left over from cutting out the curved sides on the bigger box. I usually make hinged lids but thought I’d try the set-in and slider types. Used fake ostrich as liner.

Cherry & Walnut burl with sycamore trim. little handles are contorted filbert from by backyard.

Like the style of the larger box. Beautiful lines and choice of wood makes a stunning piece!

I like these boxes and it looks like you did a nice job on them.
