Hello LJ’s today we have a reproduction piece made by original designer fellow L.J. Drunken Woodworker. When I first saw this post it had me coming back to take multiple peeks til I added to my favorite file. With my shop have plenty of cut-off piece of Baltic Plywood and some nice P.A. Black Cherry I had to take a stab at it so I sketch up a drawing and off to the shop I went. I added a backing and some of my own shapes to the base but for the most part it Drunken Woodworker band saw box a brilliant design if I have to say so myself. The Black Cherry really set up nicely with the stack of Baltic plywood once finish with Danish oil and a Shellac finish. Its been awhile since I’ve made a band saw box but it was fun getting back into to making two of them, thanks for viewing your friend in woodworking BC

Hey, BC…..a bit of a departure for you. I am always amazed how well the plywood plays in a project like this. Those stripes become an interesting design element, accenting the solid wood front and back. I like this, and I gotta try one of these myself.

The cherry and Baltic birch did form a happy union here Wilson. The tone of the finished product is nice and warm. This is a very nice box.

Nice box. What are the dimensions? This is Something that is on my to do list.

When making these boxes is there particular place to make the cut through with the band saw.

That’s interesting, with the open right side. I guess that eliminates the kerf line dilemma.
