This is a Christmas gift for my Sister-in-law. The pattern came out of Lois Kenner Ventura’s book of bandsaw boxes. It’s made with Oak that is sandwiched by Walnut (both species 30+years old). The drawer pulls (Redheart & Oak), are cut-offs, from a heart box made long ago, then sculpted a bit to fit the drawers. The drawer inners are lined with a burgundy color leather. Finish is 3 coats of Danish Oil, then 3 coats of MinWax Poly. Thnx for checkin in, and any comments, good/bad/ugly will be appreciated. HoHo is comin to town soon. I can’t believe it.

Seeing how we only have 6 pics for our project posts, here’s another of the drawers. The pictures really don’t it justice.

looks pretty, one question, with what kind of blade did you use to cut it out? i tried to do some boxes with a 3/8 inch blade but can not make tight turns.

Thnx guys. nayo: I actually used a 3/16 and 1/4 blades. You can use a larger blade, just make many “relief” cuts along the way of all those tight turns. Then the spindle sander is always helpful to eliminate any cut marks.

Roger,
Curious about the design, is it significant to something ?” Or just what happened on paper ?
Regardless, different and definitely an eye catcher.
