Well I finally made a trip to Woodcraft and purchased some zero-clearance made by Carter. All and all I am pretty happy with them. $10 for 3 inserts and they fit well. However what I quickly learned about zero-clearance inserts is that they do tend to impact the removal of saw dust. There was a LOT more dust on the table of the bandsaw than when I was not using the inserts; but overall they performed as expected.

I have the box completely cut out and rough sanded and glued. All that is left is finish-prep sanding and finishing itself. I have a few pictures that I took during the process that I will have to post at a later time. When I get these posted I will also post the steps required to make this type of bandsaw box for those who may be interested. This week at work will be busy so I do not plan on getting the box finished until Saturday but I will be sure to get pictures posted as soon as I can.

Later all!
