Here are a couple of Bandsaw Boxes. The first is made from an old antique rolling pin. I had found one in an antique store and decided to try it. I want to do another some day to utilize lessons learned from this one. The drawers are really hard to get right on the rounded pin. Note that I did not succeed on this one, hence I want to do another. The drawer handles were carved from a dowel and stained to match the cedar in the rolling pin. Another advantage of making a bandsaw box from the rolling pin is this; by hollowing out all rolling pins that are laying around the house, they are somewhat lighter and don’t hurt as much. :-)
The second box is popular from the firewood pile. It had already been split. I left the weathering on the top to give it a little character.
