Glue up half a dozen bits of board to make the block.,I used Tassie Blackwood and then bandsaw the back off at about 1/4 inch [ sorry no pics of this step]

Glue the template to the block and bandsaw the drawers
Glue the back ..back on..

Cut front and back from drawers and then cut recess from drawer carcasses and then after sanding the insides glue the back and front back on.,..

then cut the outside from the main body


Sand for a few hours or days and then finish with your choice of finish?

That looks easy enough, sounds easy enough, but I’ll bet it still requiires a bit of talent ;-)) Thanks for the post.

You make it look easy. The wood looks great as does the box.

I just love the bandsaw. A very nice bandsawn box.

With a lot of additional sanding inbetween.

Nice, very nice. I would like to make more projects like this. What type and size bandsaw are you using? what size and type blade do you use for this type of project. I typically keep a 1/4 blade in mine.

Did you just hand sand the round over on all the edges or use a router?

I love the pictures in progress. I am very new and just can’t figure things out from the final product. This is so cool. I can’t wait to be able to make something like this. I really like your cutting boards too. You make amazing stuff. Truly an artist.

I have always seen these boxes and wondered how they did it. Nice explanation. Your blog makes it look easy. Not as easy as your last cutting board… but… Thanks again for sharing. Really appreciated Larry.

Looks like the quality of your bandsaw far exceeds my JET . What brand do you have down there , Larry ? I was also wondering how folks made these …thanks for showing me the light , and I don’t mean the exit sign : )

Bob and Len My bandsaw is a BAS 350 from Carba-tec here in OZ [ the Jet is a good machine],, 14” with 8” rise using a 1/4” blade.
Fin thanks for the encouragement and look forward to more blogs on how I do things,,not necessarily the right way but the way I do IT! I round over the front edges with a 3/8” roundover bit [only partial] and then handsand for a few hours i also use a linishing belt sander and a disc sander and finish off with a small ROS 120grit
Len don’t get off just yet.. the ride has only just begun!!!

Mine is a 14” JET JWBS-14CS enclosed base model with the optional JET riser block installed , Cool Blocks , KREG fence w/resaw block , after market DELTA mobile base , and I opted to upgrade my tension spring with the Carter Cobra Coil and adapted an old handcrank wheel to the tension adjuster rod .That made it so easy to adjust and back off the tension on the blade like we’re supposed to do for the sake of the blade and wheels longevity.
Speaking of blades , I had two Timberwolf brand 1/4” & 1/2” blades and the 1/4” broke while cutting Pine of all things , and the 1/2” broke right at the weld .
I’ve got an Olson 1/2” 4TPI Skip on her right now and there seems to be no stopping it.

I like your set up with the bearing guides . Is that factory or an add on ?

That’s nice that you didn’t have to add them on . I’ve looked into the Carter and other bearing guides , but right now I have more important things to spend my XXXX money on : )
If you liked my BCH this morning , you should see it now . I put three coats of Goddards Furniture Makers Wax on it…..Unbelieveable depth , made it come alive but I ‘m no photographer , so I can’t capture what I’m seeing on film or pixels …hahaha Maybe the sun will be out later today and I can get some natural light on it instead of a flash …...Well the weekend is upon us now …Have a great one , Mate !

Yeah I agree with Dusty56. Looks like your band saw has had some mods. Very nice set up. I like the box and the use of the picture to show steps. Very Nice!
