My first attempt at a band saw box. Don’t look too closely, mistakes were made along the way. I learned a lot and the next one will be easier. The dark wood is Walnut, the lighter wood is just some scrap Doug Fir I had in the garage. I turned the little knobs on my lathe. The knobs were cut from the middle section I cut form the box. It was a real fun project and the next two blocks of wood are glued up and drying in the garage.
1) Scrape off the excess glue early, rather than waiting and scraping after it’s dried. I was running short on time and got lazy.
2) Do your finish sanding of the box prior to gluing the sides back on. I thought I would just sand everything at the same time, it was a pain in the butt to sand the box with the sides glued on.
