"Rock Boxes" fun, quick, easy

I was inspired by beelzerob's thread on band saw boxes and I made these. I call them "rock boxes". I'm sure most of you have seen something similar to these. They are by no means "masterpieces" but are quick and fun to make. I've only got about three hours into these five boxes.

These started as a large bowl I was trying to turn but there was too much bark inclusion in the burl and it was starting to come apart. So I cut it up and made these little guys out of it. The main tools used are the band saw and horizontal edge sander.

I've been thinking of a lot a variations that I want to try.

Enjoy, Bret

Those are very cool. I've never seen boxes like that before. Great work and thanks for showing them off. Love it.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"
