Here are two more of the small bandsaw boxes I have been making. I have really enjoyed making the larger boxes and had a store owner asked if I could make them smaller….wasn’t sure how they would turn out, but they seem to like them. I can go smaller, but will have to use a 1/8” blade instead of the 3/16” I think…the curves will be easier that way. These were made from Koa and have 5 coats of brush on lacquer.

Great looking turtle box, Larry! I can see this being a really good seller. The other reminds me of a wave rolling in. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Candy. I have sold several of these in the Gallery..both small like these and in the normal larger size. The second on reminded me of the Ying/Yang designs

I can see that too. How big is the ‘normal larger size’?
