well my gfs bday was today and I did not have to much money to get her a gift so I made her one….This is my first crack at a band saw box that I made burring my break at work. They had a really wide blade on the band saw at work so i was really limited to the kinds of curves I could cut but I think it turned out ok. I made this all out of santos rose wood and finished it with seal 2lbs shellac and then buffed it with some wax and steel wool. I never worked with rose wood before and I must say I do like the way it finishes. I do got some orange peel in the finish that did not buff out since I was working on it at about 1 am to get it done for my girl on time and applied the finish a little to thick. oh well I think it looks ok for a last minuet rush job lol.
