Still working on getting band saw boxes right.

These were made from some big chunks of cedar left over from a lawn furniture project a couple of years ago (back then, I laminated 2×10 cedar planks to form the legs for the lawn furniture … the cutoffs yielded some 3” thick chunks of cedar).

The drawers have runners on the bottom that are about the same thickness of the band saw’s kerf. They help align and fit the drawers.

Really nice, I especially like those in the back ground. They are simple and elegant.
I think you are becoming a champ!

Nicely done. The runners were a neat idea.
Like those ones with the lids a lot.

These look great! Really impressive finishing job and I like the blue felt lining.
I’d say you don’t have to work on getting them “right” any longer.

Nicely done!

Band saw boxes are addictive! Great job, I need to take a whack at the lidded version myself.
