WOW! That is a nice box. Not sure if i like the inside compared to the beautiful wood used on the outside. I know people like a softer inside for jewelry, or to hide the bottom, but i prefer to see nice wood. If I understand right, you did all of the inside with a flat bottomed bit. Did you use a router to clean up? Thanks for posting.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

Nice bandsaw box, looks like a perfect valentines day gift

-- Martin ....always count the number of fingers you have before, and after using the saw.
