For the first part of the project, you must ask yourself, “What size is the box going to be?” If you aren’t sure, just take a couple 2×4’s and glue them together, or get a chunk of a cedar 4×4, they work good, and smell nice when they are cut up. You can get as elaborate as you want later on, but for starters keep things simple to manage.

The project must be made from a solid piece of wood or several pieces glued together to become solid. By laminating several types of wood together you can get some cool designs.

There are some awesome boxes on this website, just enter a search for projects labeled bandsaw and box. Here is a link:

I’ll second the request for pictures. Bandsaw boxes are fascinating, and with a step by step illustrated example, I might get up the courage to try one.
