After seeing the Box Joint Bracelet and reading Scrappy’s Box Joint Bracelet Tutorial (there might have been another blog on the idea but I can’t remember what site it would have been, if you know leave a comment I would love to give credit). I decided that I would give it a try. I cut my links continuously on the scroll saw instead of the work actually making box joints. It give the continuous grain around the whole bracelet
I also changed the clasp, I used cylindrical magnets. I had to modify the last link so that it looked like an “H” so the magnet would have a place to go. They will stick together on the round part so the bracelet can flex and still stay closed. I wear this a lot, and it has never fallen off, maybe I am just lucky.
Thanks for looking, comments are always welcome.

Wow! All I can say is WOW!. Fantastic job! I like the way this came out. When I cut mine, I also used one piece of wood from end to end. The grain on yours stands out soo much better.

Very clever use of the magnets. My wife mentioned hers is a little trouble getting on and off. Yours looks like it would be a lot easier.

Thank you for the mention. It is nice to know that someone took my blog and made it their own. You have done a fantastic job.

Keep up the great work.

What A great idea. I have a sister-inlaw that I have been strugling to think of something I can make her for x-mas. This would be perfect. How long did it take you to make?

I like this. Nice work!
I have been pondering an ebony and pink ivory bracelet for myself but hadn’t decided to start. The idea of eartn magnets is interesting heck I use them so muct I’m surprised I didn’t think of it myself.
