I’m sure this has been done before, but I’ve never seen it. Just a different way of doing a bandsaw box, no drawer.
The blank for this was actually the waste drawer cutout from a BSbox I made months ago!
Guesses at the type of wood this is made of are welcome. The handle is of course black walnut, but the body is two woods that I’ve asked about before on here… we came up with silver maple and water oak, but I’m starting to doubt both of those… Both woods came from firewood logs the neighbors were throwing out.

So far it just has a couple coats of BLO. I’ll probably buff to much finer grits, shellac and wax it, and flock the inside. And I have no idea who it’s for.

Here’s the exploded view of how I made it:

Thanks for looking!

I like that. A twist to a band saw box. Something I’m going to try. Thanks for posting it.
