That’s a beautiful box. I really like the design. I’ve made a few things but just got my first bandsaw and since you can’t disconnect the blade and run it through a hole to make each cut like you can with a scrollsaw, what do you do, just cut through the side and try to hide the cut somehow? I want to try and make one with an old maple stump that I’ve had lying around but not sure if I’m going to go about it the right way. I can try my usual method of making something which means I start hacking away with no clue and figure it out as I go. With the temperature at 2 degrees this morning I could always use more firewood.

Bandsaw boxes are made with cuts completely through the piece… most of the time you can try to follow grain to make your incut, so when you assemble, the saw kerf is hidden.

That is absolutely beautiful. I’m gonna try some cedar one of these days. Hope mine turns out half as good. Design, execution and finish all are great. Your sun sailer is awesome. Love the way you made the sails into drawers.

Nice. That finish really makes the wood ‘pop’.

William, well done. Nice design which highlights the beauty of the timber.
Do you agree with me when it is said that Bandsawn Box Making is fun? (although the down side is the amount of sanding!!!)

YES!!!! I love making Band saw boxes. But the sanding doesn’t bother me when all the grain starts to come alive

Can we come to an arrangement, as “the sanding doesn’t bother you” I will send my work across to you for the finishing?
