Default Getting your money's worth, boxes

I started out with a 4" X 6" Block of Red Cedar, I made the first box and then used the center plug that I cut out and made the next one and then just kept on using the center plug. I cut the shape on the band saw and sliced the top and bottom off and then cut the slider part with a #5 Polar FD Blade.
The finish is Bees Wax and Mineral Oil. The inside is my first attempt at Flocking.

Nice boxes and a very practical way to maximize the wood. I really like the slider boxes.

Very nicely done cedar boxes Terry. Those should go over quite well, they do in my area of the country.

I like them. How thick was the cedar to start with?

It started out almost 3", then I cut 2 slices (top and bottom) that were almost 1/2" each and that left me with a 2" thick piece to cut the slider part out of. Then I sliced thinner pieces off after that.

That is kind of what I am doing with the inside cuts from my baskets, making little boxes. It is a great idea and helps use up wood that otherwise be in the "fire" pile.
