Finally had some time to make something. The design is from Lois Ventura’s book. Made from walnut with maple handles. The drawers will be lined when I can decide on a colour. Finished with two coats of tung oil and three coats of gloss spray laquer.
It needed a bit more sanding, a couple of saw marks on the top that showed themselves during the finishing process. They are not too visable, the photo seems to show them up more. But overall I am happy with it as a third attempt at a bandsaw box and first with some “expensive” wood.

Great job on that BS box. I have made that many times. I like using lighter colored wood for the drawer fronts also.

Very nice, Simon. My two favorite woods.
You ready for the Lotus box?

The lotus box is on my to do list but I think I’ll have a bit more practice first.
