Here are a couple small bandsaw boxes i whipped up from leftover aromatic cedar cut offs.

Had some difficulty with the camera, these are so small when I zoomed in on them they didn’t want to come into focus.

The first one is pretty small, about 2-1/2” diameter, I wanted to see how tight I could turn with my new 1/8” blade. The radius of the outer curves is the size of a dime.

The other one is about 3” cube and stays shut with recessed magnets.

Both are finished with wipe on poly and paste wax, and lined with self-adhesive blue felt. Insides have some cedar exposed for the aroma.

All comments welcome. I’m gearing up for my woodworking garage sale, trying to use up my scraps!

Sometimes our best boxes are ones made from scraps. I have even made a couple of small ones from the drawer cutouts. You sure got all the curves matched up real well on the first one. That’s hard to do sometimes. Take care and keep cranking out bandsaw boxes. They are very good therapy.

Scrap Projects are the Best!

Love these little boxes. That sure is a tight curve on the first one. Great job on both!

Keep it up.

Creative use of timber not used on earlier projects.
