Project Information

Hello!

These are my first bandsaw boxes, thought I'd share them with you.

Pics 1-3
Apple wood box with no back, so drawers can be pulled from either side. There are walnut handles on both sides of the drawers. Third picture shows how I hid my joint using the natural grain to hide it. Finished with 50% satin poly and 50% mineral spirits, then polished with bee's wax.

Pics 4-6
Spalted maple box with backing. Again with walnut handles on the drawers, and finished the same as the apple wood box.

Both boxes were sanded using a oscillating spindle sand, orbital sander, then sanded by hand 80 to 220 before finish was applied. I used a hand held router with a round over bit, to soften the front edge. And used a combination of quick bar clamps and spring clamps, for my glue up.

Really cool. Looks like a good job for your first boxes. It's easy to get hooked doing these - so I look forward to seeing more.

Thanks for sharing.

Those are beautiful. I like the flow through design of the first one and the wood on the second one…..I'm officially jealous. :)

I don't think that there is any limit to the number of different designs of band saw boxes. This is a very nice one and you did a fine job on it. Congratulations.
