This was one of those projects that was built just to see if I could do it.

The box is made out of pine since when I made the box I hadn’t had used a bandsaw very much, and I didn’t want to ruin any of my hardwoods. The pulls are actually out of cottonwood and was a pain in the rear end to work with even at that small of amount.

Well done, especially as it is your first bandsawn box, which are fun to make.

Good Luck with the competition and I hope to see more of your bandsawn boxes published on this Forum.

Good Health

This is a really interesting project. The level of imagination and talent that is present here continues to amaze and impress me. Never, in my wildest dreams, would I have envisioned a box inside of the wood that was used for this piece.

Thanks for sharing and enlightening me.

Bandsaw boxes are really fun to make. Although I have only built one, there will be another in my future sometime. I like your design.
