I made this Teddy Bear box for my grandson Owen’s first birthday. It’s about 8 1/2” wide at the base, 12” tall, and 3 1/2 deep. With the 12+ cutting height of my new bandsaw I was able to curve the back. The design was inspired by a similar box I had seen online and then asked my brother Fred to draw up a plan from that picture. Fred suggested the heart shaped mid-section with ‘belly button’ drawer pull, and he sketched in the paws.

Nice work Phil, Owen looks like he loves it. I need a bigger bandsaw.

Phil. I just came across your Teddy bear box. I have been searching for a while and this is one of the best bandsaw boxes I have have seen for a child.

I Will have to make one for my granddaughter. Thank you for sharing, it is greatly appreciated! AJ
