I hadn’t tried an upright bandsaw box yet so figured I’d give it a try. This was supposed to be a christmas gift but obviously, as I just finished it, is very, very late. This gift is for a friend who’s makeup and nails and hair are always done perfectly so I actually bought some fancy iridescent enamel nail polish to use for the dog print inlays. I haven’t opened a bottle of nail polish in well over 20 years lol. I carved the paw prints with my dremel after penciling them on to the box lid. It’s all mahogany, 7×4x3, and finished with 7 or 8 or maybe more coats wipe on semi-gloss poly. It was a fun project so I think I’d like to make more to use up that nail polish!

Thanks for looking!

Sharp box Kim. Are the corners done with a Forstner, or did you saw them out?

Thanks for posting.

Steve, I did it all on the bandsaw, narrow blade but I can’t remember width I used. Cutting the mahogany is pretty easy being as soft as it is. Easy to sand out saw marks, too. Sorry, no eye bolt in this one…lol!
