This was my firs time ever using a band saw. I plan to take this pattern and make a bandsaw box like it.

I really love this – can you tell me how you got the pattern onto the wood to cut it? Did you just freehand it?

Wow! This looks great! It doesn’t seem to be a product of a first timer. Or is this just the effect of beginners’ luck? Anyways, this is really great! I’ll try to make my own design as well.

And just so we’re clear.. i did find this drawing online. I just decided to play with it and eventually try to turn it into a bandsaw box. i don’t want to take credit for anyone else’s creativity

I am totally impressed by your bandsaw work. Very well done. I can tell immediately that you have more talent than me. To this day, I have never done as good a job on a bandsaw as you did on your first try.

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

That’s an amazingly jaw-dropping project for a first-timer. Well, you can really make cuts like straight or curve or patterns using bandsaw. :) Can you please tell me the brand of the bandsaw you are using?
