1- this is a scrolling forum... what's this about band saw boxes? (only kidding!)
2- be aware that full size band saws have about double the capacity of a benchtop band saw... so if someone has a benchtop band saw, the boxes they can make are limited to not too much larger than what we can make on the scrollsaw. (ie. unless one follows the layering techniques of Gary MacKay, who showed us how to make several types of boxes on the scroll saw that used to be made only on a bandsaw.) However, the really impressive, larger bandsaw boxes require a full size band saw, IMHO.
3- that instructables website is AMAZING! All kinds of subjects are covered including woodworking, metalworking, electronics, clothing, food, etc, etc. I love that website!

Thanks for the link Mike. I would love to have a go at making one sometime. Will have to get a narrower blade first though, I only have 1/2". What T.P.I is recommended ?

Mick I do not remember how many tpi mine has. I ordered a 3/16" blade from suffolkmachinery. It cuts pretty aggressive.

Hi Mick -you can get 1/8th blades from a couple of US suppliers - Lenox I believe is one and i think but I'm not 100% sure that suffolkmachinery also has them - in fact I have them on my agenda to check up on later today.

The guy to talk to about blades in general and box making in particular is our Kiwi mate Rhys aka Hobbyhorse. He's the bees knees on box making when he isn't piddlin' about with fancy rockers! I'm sure if you send him a pm he'll be more than happy to advise you.
