I got the idea for this bandsaw box from a Texas flag bandsaw box I found online. The difference is the Texas box was made with straight lines and I wanted mine wavy. My first attempt didn’t work out due to a bad design, but I think the second attempt worked out pretty good. It’s made out of maple and I used transtint dye. The box is basically five boxes glued together after they were routed and dyed. It is roughly 8×11 x 3 ” thick. I decided not to use suede tex because I wanted the color to show in the drawers. Hope you like it!
