I used my blanks from my "Reincarnated Wood" to create Dr. Seuss inspired bandsaw boxes. The Green one is buckeye burl with alumilite and the purple is Maple burl with alumilite. I really couldnt find a style of bandsaw boxes I liked so I made up my own style. I think they came out pretty good

Those are really good looking boxes... great design and workmanship.

Bandsaw boxes are on my bucket list... there's a fellow that used to have a shop here in Tellico Plains that I always made a point to visit just to look at his boxes... he's long since moved out of town, but I was always inspired by his work... haven't tried them yet, still working on getting my turning better, but they're on the list.

That is what I call creative...whacky and wild! Can you tell us the approximate size? Did you cut them with a band saw or a scroll saw? Those are some pretty tight turns.
Great job!

I cut them on my Jet 14" bandsaw using a 3/16' 4 TPI rake blade. The sizes range from 4 7/8" tall to 6" tall and 2 1/2" wide to 5 1/2" wide. They were a real joy to make and a lot of hand sanding. Good thing I don't have arthritis.
