Here are a few of the bandsaw boxes I have built in the past few weeks. All drawers are lined with a spray on felt. The boxes are made from Koa…which sells well here in the Galleries

Larry, they are really great. My favourites are nos 2 and 3. But I like them all. Something I have never tried yet.
Thanks for sharing.

Glad to see you in your shop helping Santa with his gift list. LOL!! Each of your boxes have their own distinctive look but if you gave me a choice of one to take home it would be #3, I just like its organic lines. Nice work buddy!!

Very nice work on all boxes, but the fourth is my favorite—unusual and organic!

Larry – you do very nice work & I love this wood – jealous.
Question – I’m just getting started with work in a gallery & have tried to “Hide” all my entry lines for cuts… yours don’t detract found the piece, have you had any comments about the cuts versus none?

Aloha Darc,

To be honest with you, I have never been good at hiding the cut in line so a couple years ago I just decided to enhance it by filing and sanding it at the same angel I to the drawers and sides. And no, I have never had a customer comment on it either way. I know Randy is very good at hiding the cut. Once in awhile I will hide the cut.

-- Larry in Hawaii,

Thanks Larry, perhaps I’ll try a couple & see reaction if any. It still takes great care to make them look as good as you do… And then there’s Randy – I won’t even be able to come close to his work in my lifetime.

Very Nice.

I have been toying with the idea of trying to do some of these lately. I have seen people list the prices of some of these from $199 – $299 for a small 6”-8” box what do find is the more accurate price point for selling them?
