   People will think you're a pro woodworker!
Lots of great photos and well written instructions make this project even accessible to the absolute beginner. I have been woodworking for only a few short months and was able to make a box that looks like it was made by someone who has been doing woodworking for years! [ See photo ] I veered away from the author's design and used in my box maple instead of plywood. The author not only has great hair, he is quite active on social media and often responds to tweets or posts with encouraging comments.
   Where Artistry and Craftsmanship Meet
The designs in David Picciuto's book are strongly inspired and artistically one-of-a kind. The directions in his book are detailed and contain a wealth of instructional color photos. I also enjoyed the photo gallery at the end of the book with Bandsaw box designs from the US and Europe. Bandsaw box making has opened for me a new area of woodworking. Where complex joinery and precision cutting give way to flowing geometries. Since buying David's book, I have built six of his designs. Once you have the basics under control, the construction goes fast. It is the shaping and finishing that takes real time, but the results are well-worth it.
   A book every woodworker should have.
Great illustrations :
   Small but nice!
Great little book, wish there were a few more designs for the money, but overall, I am happy with the purchase. I found about 4 designs that I probably use and I may modify a couple to upgrade them as well. Overall, a good purchase, probably more great for a beginner, but a great purchase overall, glad I made the purchase. You can print the drawings if you choose and change the sizes with your printer larger or smaller. Recommend printing them on contact paper, then peel and stick right to your stock to get started.
   Great start on boxes
The author shows detailed pictures of the construction as well as printed instructions for each box. Has access to helpful online templates that must be expanded to glue to glued blocks. The templates can be expanded to create any desired box size. Having made four of the boxes so far, I see how I can also do my own designs.
   This has good clear ideas
I have watched several youtube videos on bandsaw box making and I feel this is the best book out there.
   This book changed my life
This book changed my life. I really didn 't expect much, but the plot twists and character development really showed the maturity of the author. I did not anticipate the ending. For the final product, the book was finely crafted with high paper products and appeared to use the best inks available. I was surprised at the elegance of the binding and I could tell that this book was made to survive through the ages. This book will become a personal favorite that will exist for generations. Merciful to the author and to the publishing company for having set the bar so high. The boxes are also pretty cool and easy to make.
   Beginners take heed.
Getting ready for my first whel at the band saw boxing. The Wood Whisperer mentioned the author : I ordered here, went there and had the book the next day. The simple, but elegant designs are exactly what I needed for making some chic and elegant Christmas gifts. Mr Picciuoto did a great job. David Adkins is a regarder.
   A good book
I would have given the book more stars because it is a solid 4 star book, but in his opening comments, he states that with a few inexpensive tools you can start making bandsaw boxes '', but when I read the book it was pretty obvious that some inexpensive are not going to have you making bandsaw boxes. A decent 12” bandsaw is $ 1,000.00 not to mention the disc sander, the oscillating spindle sander, drill press or in his case a drill press, plus clamps and sand paper etc... It is pretty obvious to me that you are not doing this on the cheap.
I really like this book, it gave me the tools to start making my own bandsaw boxes and how to do it safely.
