« Part 6: Put the Body of the Box back together. Part 7 of Bandsaw Boxes Made Easy series Part 8: Glue that drawer back together. »

While the body of the Bandsaw Box is drying, you can work on the drawer. Cut ¼” to ½” off the front and back of the drawer. Make sure you label the pieces so they go back together properly. We will then cut out the piece left over in the middle to create the cavity for the drawer. This can be anything you want, but it basically creates the amount of storage space in your drawer. It could be square or curved, but with a bandsaw you could accomplish nearly anything for this task. Just make sure you keep the “walls” of the drawer thick enough to be stable. I recommend 1/4” to 1/2” thickness, just like the front and back of the drawer. Keep the chunk that you cut out to make a drawer handle. Lets see some pictures!
