"Milan" Bandsaw Box

Project by Drunken Woodworker posted 06-28-2013 03:57 AM 8702 views 28 times favorited 17 comments Add to Favorites Watch

2-drawer bandsaw box made from zebra wood, walnut and plywood. The main body of the box is baltic birch plywood sandwiched between zebra wood. Drawers and feet are made from walnut and the drawer compartments are lined with black flocking. Finished with a blend of boiled linseed oil, mineral spirits and polyurethane.

This box is named after Milan, Italy as all my boxes are named after locations. I feel this gives each box an identity as makes them identifiable.

That’s an awesome looking BS Box. I like the idea of using different wood for the drawer fronts.
