This is almost a twin of another mushroom box I did before Christmas for a sis-in-law. This is a project that I’m embarrassed to say was supposed to be done at Christmas…. Well, December was just few weeks ago… umm, in Roger time.. Oak and Walnut with Maple and Redheart drawer pulls, the 2 drawers hold about 9 rings each. Finished with Satin Poly. Anyhoo, thnx for lookin in, and any comments, good/bad/ugly will be appreciated.

Nice bandsaw box, Roger! Is the center cut in the stem glued? December to April is not bad. Last year hubby’s birthday present, due in April, was delivered in November! Oops! Thanks for sharing.

That’s cool Roger. It’s got a really nice flow to it. Looks like you would’ve had enough waste to make another.

Really tight and dialed in. Some bandsaw boxes look kind of slopped together, but this one is really…. right.

Couldn’t be any better.

Just like #1, this is great looking! I especially like the interior details for the rings. Thanks for sharing and good to see you are enjoying some shop time.

That is a very creative bandsaw box. I’m always amazed at the ideas I see on here.
You got that one done 8 months early. Way to go , Roger!!
