Default learning curve box

This one has taken me a long time to finish, lots of noobie errors along the way, but I'm finally happy enough to show.

Cant claim the design, found this general shape on a search, but I made it taller and narrower than the original untill it filled an A4 sheet of paper for the template.

Bob I have made a few bandsaw boxes but none that nice. Where did you find the pattern? I would like to make one of those. Well try to make one.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

I just google bandsaw box images. There are thousands of them. When I find a general shape I like, I copy it to the computer and then play with the image a bit to suit my taste. The original of this one was only half the height and a lot wider than my version.

The last one that was similar in general style to this I did a mirror image and made a pair of boxes.
