Completed some small boxes that were made from the drawer cut outs from previous posting of cousins boxes.
These are about 3” wide, 2” high & 2’12” deep – walnut & maple. Probably as small as I want to go.
4 coats of Arm-R-Seal.

Found out that small is not less time consuming!

On a whim I decided to show these & a couple of my other ones to a local “fine art” gallery for a critique of my work to this point. After sending them photos requested they had me come in & I was very surprised that they said they carry a small number of them. I realize it no cost to them since it’s on consignment, but very surprised that at this point in my progress they’d even consider them. All the extra time/effort in the finishing probably was key. They thought $65 would be a good price point for the mini’s (At this point I wouldn’t have a clue).

Don’t know if I want to go this way, since I’m not keen on setting up and maintaining a “business” for tax purposes. But sure would have a lot of write offs for equipment :-)

Great job. Like you I decided one day to use those drawer cutouts to make small boxes. I took them to the Gallery I sell boxes to and found they liked them…bought everyone I had made. Hope they sell well for you also.

Thanks Larry – If I made them from scratch I think it would have been a little easier to sand & finish. Some of the interior curves were a bitch.

Beautiful little band saw boxes! Like the color contrast and the shapes. Great work and use of the scraps.

Have your say...
