« Part 8: Glue that drawer back together. Part 9 of Bandsaw Boxes Made Easy series no next part

Remember the chunk of wood from inside your drawer? That works nicely for a handle since the grain of the wood is all consistent. If not, you can put anything in for a handle, a dowel, a screw, a nail, a pull from the hardware store, a hole, you name it, just get that drawer open somehow. That is up to you.

Once all the pieces are glued up, just sand up the body of the drawer so it fits nicely in the body. Once that is good, apply your finish. Be careful not to put too much in the drawer cavity of the body, it can keep the drawer from fitting right.

Finally, Enjoy the fruits of your labor!

Here is a look at all the pieces prior to glue up. Picture 052

Not finish sanded, but I completed it so I could get this blog finished prior to the end of the school year! I like to keep the handle of the drawer similar to the style of the drawer, but mine needs a little work.

This has been a wonderful series from which I have learned a great deal. I have been meaning to tackle one of these boxes but have had some questions about the process. This series has helped clarify the process for me.

Thanks for taking the time to post this. I really appreciate it.

Great job, Jon. Hopefully this will get more people making bandsaw boxes. They can be rather addictive. Nothing is more relaxing than to massage wood into something that someone will look at and say, “Now, how did he do that?”
