no previous part Part 1 of BandSaw Boxes - First Attempt series no next part

I have just begun getting ready to start a box project. I’ve wanted to give it a shot since getting my Rikon Band Saw a few months back. There have been dozens of designs posted by other LJ’s, and they all have looked very cool and unique. I think it was Betsy who gave away a box to her boss. I like the design and it doesn’t seem as difficult (just as attractive though) as some. I’m going to give her design a shot. Here is the blank I made from Walnut. It’s about 10” L, 4” W, and 4” H.

A friend of mine bought her book I took a look at it and also bought it.

Like you, I have a project in mind.

Well I guess I can call it a start since I guess you actually cut out the blank.

Just kidding Jeff.

I guess it’s being made out of walnut huh?
