Well, after recently completing my homemade bandsaw, it only seemed right to build a bandsaw box. I laminated 2 pieces of soft maple, a piece of oak, and some mahogany into a small block. After pasting on the template I cut it out. After that it was just a lot of sanding, and then a smooth tung oil finish. I got the idea and the template from Steve Ramsey. Its a great project from the scrap bin.

Thanks for looking – Chris

Nice job there Chris. I like your choice of wood contrasts.

I did that design from Steve too and you should be prepared for family and friends wanting you to make more. They are fun, easy, and you say a good scrap bin project.
