MY wife got interested in making a bandsaw box for her bracelets. The design is hers entirely. It has a rustic look because she did it freehand. Other than some peripheral advice, she did the entire project herself.
I am proud of how she made the front. Instead of using an entry point on the face, she cut off the entire front and made the entry point on the next layer. This required her to cut out the drawer front holes to match the bandsaw entry point cutouts. For that, she used our scroll saw.
The dimensions are 7”H X 4”D X 9-1/2 wide
The wood she used is spalted dogwood and the back is pine.
The finish is a lacquer to seal the spalted dogwood, then she used Tung oil and later, paste wax. She spent a lot of time making this box and it will be a treasure for her to look at and to use.
She adds this: “That bandsaw is scary!”
