However they are easy to create and make great gifts for storing little trinkets. Have Fun!
I want to thank Steve Ramsey at WoodworkingForMereMortals.com for his tutorial video that got me started in the box making world
Step 1: Design Your Creation
Lois Keener Ventura wrote a book on making bandsaw boxes.
This design I drew up in Sketchup (free version)
Step 2: Prepare your blank
On this particular box I used a piece of 8/4 Walnut for the core and 2 pieces of Lace Wood for the front and back. The total block measured 3 x 6 x 11
Step 3: Blank Clean-Up
At this point you are only cutting the outside of your design.
Keep in mind the smallest radius you can cut is determined by the size of your bandsaw blade. I used a 3/16 or 1/4" blade for the boxes I've made so far.
NOTE: if you fail to follow your line don't worry, just consider it a design change :)
Step 5: Sand Your Creation
NOTE: I usually make my boxes around 3" thick so they will fit on my spindle sander!
