Bill, have you "tuned" up your bandsaw? I am no expert on bandsaws, always pull out my "cheat sheet" before I start a box. My cheat sheet is a couple of good articles from a couple of wood magazines that I stapled together and stuck in a file box in a folder for such occassions. Blade tension is the first thing that comes to mind. The next thing that happens to my students frequently is they tend to push the material through to fast. Lastly, what kind of wood are you using to make your box? My boxes made of red oak are a lot more time consuming than the boxes made of popular. Oh, one more thing that comes to mind. A bandsaw blade really does dull quicker than I originally thought. Especially if it is the cheap ones like I put on the bandsaws at school. To insure success, before I start a run of bandsaw boxes, I put on a new blade. It is a joyful way to cut boxes with a good blade and it does insure success more often than not.
God and family, the rest is icing on the cake.
I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place.
