This is my first bandsaw box, and proved to be much more of a challenge than I anticipated…
I inherited the wood from a friends grandfather who just passed away so the box is his wood and in his memory. I believe the front is cocobolo and the middle appears to be mahogany. The only thing is the mahogany was very soft and didn’t weigh as much as other mahogany I’ve used…. What’s the explanation here guys?
I turned the pulls from the same wood as the middle.
Anyways it’s finished with one coat of shellac and a few coats of rub on poly. I’ve never been more disappointed with a finish…. It didn’t dry well, did apply well…. only on the cocobolo. I’m not sure If I just needed a newer can of poly or if the wood was telling me it didn’t like the finish.
I have to give credit where credit is deserved, and say that I got the pattern from this fellow and his youtube video, he provided a template on his website…. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H1OAAM0tQrg
