Tony, I like this tower look. If I can ever get out of making squares, I’ll set up the band saw to make a small box.

Pretty neat, how do you start your blade inside. Do you just cut through the side and patch the cut hole? jockmike

Thanks for the words of encouragement.

jockmike2, yes with this box there is one bandsaw entry point which was closed (glued) after the drawer blanks were bandsawn. With the other box (Spring Bud) there are three bandsaw entry points which were glued closed.

If you are interested if learning more you are most welcome to have a look at the bandsaw box making section of my web site.

Debbie, the bandsaw is considered to be more dangerous for some than the tablesaw because of the fact that most people feel that it isn’t, so they don’t take the proper precautions when using it. A LumberJock just published a book on making bandsaw boxes and it is very well written and has step by step illistrations and instructions on making bandsaw boxes. You should check it out! http://www.woodworks-by-donna.com/.

that’s a good point Os… everything is dangerous if you take safety for granted.

The book will be on my list—as soon as I start mastering some of the other tools that I have purchased.
I think the bandsaws, for me, are the “golden ring”—when I feel ready, then I shall “create” :)
