This is my first band saw box (and first project posted on LJ). I recently purchased a new Rikon 14 deluxe band saw and this was the first thing I made with it as soon as the saw was ready to go. The wood was some small pieces I had laying around. Its made of walnut on the front and back with cherry in the middle. The pull on the front is mahagony. Its finished with Minwax tung oil, about 4 coats, then some rub on gloss poly with a light wet sand of 2000 grit with mineral spirits then wax. This is my first project with my new shop that wasnt for the shop. It came out decent enough and I hope to improve more once I get some more projects under my belt. Thanks for looking.

Nice job. These boxes are the neatest things to make and so easy to sooooooo hard too! Depending on only the imagination.

Good job and welcome to LJ. I hope you enjoy your Rikon as much as I’ve enjoyed mine.
