heres a couple of salt boxes i designed.
check over the file to see if they are safe for your machine, feel free to mod them, just give me a copy so i can see what you've done.
these are supposed to use the 1/4" x 1/16" super magnets, just havent got them in yet.

Thank you for the post. I tried routing a salt box out of beech using a 1/2" BN bit and the thing split on me. So I switched to oak and it did a better job. Mine was quite a bit thicker than yours. Also, I added a magnetic to help keep it closed and that worked just fine. These are great and fun projects.

Btw, i had to offset my 1/2" ball nose .25 in from the line on the bowl to keep it from chewing on the edge.
Maybe because of the 90 degree sides.

Thank you for sharing. As soon as my new machine is delivered this will be one of my first projects.

Here are a couple spice boxes I have done for a spice store. The double one with "S" and "P" on them sell pretty
good and I also do the "S" and "P" on a single box that sells well. The triple box for spices for chicken, pork and beef
did not go over so I no longer do those. I also do quite a few single boxes with a fleur-de-lis on the lid. Those sell well
as I am from South Louisiana. I make my boxes from cypress and again, being from Louisiana, it sells well.

A year or so ago I made some like those for a lady that sells specialty salts. Unfortunately neither her salts or the containers sold well.

This was featured in the Vectric newsletter. https://www.vectric.com/vectric-communi ... =1&items=0

The project file page https://portal.vectric.com/content/p/Saltbox claims compatibility with VCarve 9.5 but the files in the ZIP archive are Aspire .crv3d files.
