My associate, Jim (aka RAM MAN) made these boxes on his new precision 4” model saw. The corners and bottom are double rabbeted on 1/8” stock. The top slides and locks with no hardware, just good joinery.

The finish is hand rubbed paste wax. The box is about 1” x 1” x 3-1/4”. And about 3 cubic inches.

The other box is jatoba as is the beady eyed pipe.

Those are very expensive little saws… aren’t they?

Like buying a full sized table saw!

$400 or so with a pair of carbide .070” kerf blades. He sets up with calipers. He can resaw almost 2”. The saw is quite solid and not a bit a toy. The rip fence is cast alum and the miter fence is quite accurate. I was quite pleased & surprised at the quality. My Grizzly G0715P was only about 2x the cost!
