Hardwood Blocks For Building Small Band Saw Boxes

I sell a lot of small hardwood blocks that people use to make little band saw boxes, or other small wooden items.   Some are even shaped and ready to cut.   They are mostly left from the inside of drawers, or cut offs from around larger boxes.  Most all are made from 2 different species of wood.   I generally put the prettier, more exotic woods, on the front and back with a domestic wood in the center. They vary in size, but most will be from 1″ to 3″ high by 3″ to 6″ or 8″ long and about 2 1/2″ to 3″ thick.


I just thought I would let everyone know they are available if you want an easy way to build same small band saw boxes.

They are only fifty cents each, plus whatever it costs to ship them to you.   The shipping will generally run almost as much as the cost of the wood.   That may seem expensive, but if you consider the cost of exotic wood and the time it takes to build a block, you’ll find that these are really quite reasonable.

To help you get started, I have created a video on how to build a small band saw box, and made it available on You Tube.   It covers each step in detail from beginning to completion.

For those of you that are creative and like to come up with new ideas.  Here are some uniquely shaped cut offs that you may be able to make something out of.  If you think you can use them, let me know and I’ll send them to you for the cost of the shipping.
