Pictured: This motorcycle Bandsaw Box I made in the image of my Harley Davidson Softail Heritage Classic and has been a popular piece, it is made out of spalted hackberry, a simple 3 drawer design and a fun bandsaw box to make.

Build: This is actually a quick and simple build, no hidden drawers just straight through, This build was constructed from a single block of spalted hackberry no glue ups, the design was cut to shape then the back 3/8”, the cut lines were penciled onto the face and cuts were made following the grain. Dimensions of this box are 10” x 5” x 4”

Scope: Since I ride a bike, I wanted to create something that would appeal to the motorcyclist community something that would sit nice on any piece of furniture with plenty of storage to put things in.

Side Note, remember to always watch out for motorcycles.

Darn you Randy….you did it once again. I really like this design. I have allot of friends that ride (I gave it up years ago and stick to quads and my old jeep these days). I just might have to try this one….along with the others. I have about 6 of then being built at the same time. Thanks for sharing your new design.

I ride also (Honda GoldWing) so I can easily see the M/C … But when I look at the 2nd pic (the view from the right rear quarter) it reminds me of the Flintstones car! LOL

Beautiful box!
