Very appealing. Does the handle have a recess to grab?

Your band saw box is very cool. Well done.

Thanks! Actually Ratchet, I probably should have thought out the handle a bit more. Slightly difficult to open by the handle but the drawer slides out both ways so you can push/pull it open.

I like it….a lot.
Where is the entry kerf? You hid it well.

It looks like the entry kerf is about 1/4 to 1/3-of the way down the side from the top, on the skinnier section. It is most noticeable on the side shot that shows off the plywood. At least, that’s my guess. See the line variance in that profile shot? I’d agree with you though… a very well-hidden entry point!

This is a beautiful and creative piece of work. I like the combination of humble plywood, mixed with the beauty of the rosewood. Great contrast, both between the colors, as well as the naturally curving and varying thickness of lines in the rosewood, versus the very precise lines from the side of the plywood layers.

Gene, you nailed it on the entry point. If I choose to make another one like this I’ll choose a different entry point that has more surface for glueing it back shut.

This is why I like this website. I would have never thought to use plywood like that, but that sure does look nice.
