Like the vine box, this is all BKP. Tried to stain the drawer fronts in Autumn colors. It really just another learning practice with my rickity band saw. I am mostly learning the limitations of the saw as to what kind of radiuses I can cut with a 1/4” blade and the Carter Stabilizer. Practice, practice, practice keep doing something until you get it right,,,, or you run out of wood!

Well, I have 4 people who will admit to liking this project and Kathy makes 5 (but by marriage, she has vowed to like my stuff.) So I’ll keep practicing. Might as well, I have BKP coming in from Monte and more Myrtle coming from Cook in OR. and that has all gotta be converted to saw dust and firewood before I am looking at the dirt side of grass.

Dick, I hope you are right about having a lot of time. Maybe it will be enough time to really learn how to make stuff people will buy.

That is certainly unique! Get some 3/16 and 1/8” blades and you can cut some tight radii with the Stabilizer.

Unique band saw box! I like the style on the drawers and finish used.
