I recently started making band saw boxes. I made about a dozen of them. Made of eastern red cedar, most are nine inches long and five inches tall and four inches front to back. The Texas Tech double “T” is fourteen inches tall.
all the boxes and drawers are flock lined.

I love it when someone starts with reproductions of classic designs and then goes in their own direction.

All very nice boxes. Really like the flowing lines. Some day hope to make ones similar. Thanks for showing.

Nice boxes, I like the TT, If I may make a small comment. When cutting into the box try to cut with the gain. It is easier to concel the cut when glued back together. The line in the top drawer is hidden. I do not mean any disrespect on your design I really like it.

Woodbutcher7 :

I have tried doing what you suggest, in the pas,t but when I glued the cut closed the box drawers either did not fit at all or had an uneven reveal around them.
Thanks for the observation. I am just starting out making band saw boxes so I have a bit to still learn.

I did not close this gap at all. I just filled it in.

I saw that double T and knew that ole boy must be from Lubbock. Lived there quite a few years. Retired from the Fire Dept.

How did you clean the sand out of your eyes long enough to saw up that wood??

Bandsaw box looks good. I am in to a slightly different style.
