This is my second bandsaw box. Chasity is on a role drawing up the shapes for me. A coupla LJs hooked me up with some great looking wood for this box.(thanks Michael and Kyle.) It is Bloodwood and Spalted Silver Maple. 6” x 5” x 5” and finished with Watco Butcher Block oil. I think it is time for a new camera I know I am capable of taking better pictures than these. Man Fisher-Price cameras are terrible,haha.

did you cut the bloodwood front off the drawer blank and glue it to the back so you could have the spalted maple show thru on the front of the drawer? It gives it a very nice look!

Tim, I had a piece of the spalted maple left over and cut it the same width as the bloodwood. Cut my drawer out, traced it on to the maple and pulled the ole switcharoo. I just discarded the the bloodwood drawer front.

Nice work! I love the wood choices.
You must be liked for your buddies to give you a free wood!! HA HA!
I can’t take any pictures right now… My kids took their Fisher-Price back from me and won’t let me use it.
Nice box and thanks for sharing

That Bloodwood sure looks nicer now than it did in my scrap bin! I am so tickled that you could use it so well.
