For your first one it looks awesome. I have not started yet but hope to make some soon. Any suggestions on books or DVD that might help?

Very nice. Currently refurbishing an old BS (my first BS ever) and looking forward to trying my hand at BS boxes.

Thats a nice one! I really like the shape and the way the green flocking wraps the top edge.

Very nice Gary. Great first box!

Arlin, Look for two books by Lois Keener Ventura. The first is Making Beautiful Boxes with your Bandsaw and the second is Sculpted Boxes with your Bandsaw. They are both great resources and provide you with tons of information on how to do bandsaw boxes.

Thank you all for your comments.
The green felt was some I had laying around, the glue was all messed and rolled into globs. I had trouble with getting a neat edge, I findly put a steel edge on it and cut with a razor blade, then rolled the glue off and it finished with a nice edge. I watched the video about making BS boxes off LumberJocks, had to watch it 5 or 6 times, each time I noticed another detail. The curves are set to the radis of my belt sander for ease of sanding.
again thank you for the kind words.
