The Smiles
These 2 band saw boxes are made from Sapele, very similar to Mahogany, much less expensive, it is dense and easy to cut. Finished with wipe on poly, and credit for the pattern goes to Parillaworks.

I like! Sapele is definitely my favorite wood to work with. Curious as to how the pulls are attached?

Thank you for the comment.
The pulls are attached with 5 minute epoxy, you need very little for a strong bond.

Looks great Phil!

Smaller boxes like that are perfect for playing with curves and that wood looks great Many woods loose there appeal when used in small projects, fine grain is needed to keep it interesting.

Very nice indeed.

I like using the cut outs for the bases.
