My current interests seem to be Bandsaw Boxes. I really haven’t tried this before and I am enjoying the learning curve.

The first Box is Red Cedar and Plywood. Has two drawers and measures 5.25” high x 5.50” wide x 3.5” deep.

The second box is Red Cedar & Tiger Maple. It has one drawer and measures 4.5” high x 5.50” wide x 3.5” deep.

Both boxes are finished with 5 coats of Wipe on Poly, sanded with 200 grit between coats. The pattern for the two drawer box is a Steve Carmichael pattern, that he offers free on his website. The single drawer box is a free pattern from the Drunken Woodworker I also flocked the drawer and drawer cavity with Suede Tex. Flocking the drawer cavity is something I picked up watching the Drunken Woodworker’s video (above) and it really does add quite a bit to the overall looks of the project.

Be careful of those durned band saw boxes- they are addicting. Trust me, I know.
I have never thought to flock the inside of the cavity, but it is a superb idea. I’ll bet it helps to make a better fitting drawer, and a more smooth movement to boot.
I think I will share that idea with the FaceBoook group.
You did a great job on those boxes.

Thank you Donna, flocking the drawer cavity is actually an idea I got from The Drunken Woodworker, David Pachueto (sp). It does make the drawer fit better and much smoother to pull out. One of these days I hope to make a BS box half as nice as your boxes

Actually, Cajun, I think your boxes are easily as good as any I have done. You do good work no matter what you make.

Nicely done Bill. Yes, Donna is right. These are lotsa fun and are gr8 gifts. Flocking the cavity makes it look a bit richer to me. Good one.

Bill, pretty nice boxes. I have yet to use flocking, I always just finish the inside of the drawers and cavity the same as the outside surface.

Give it a try sometime Dick – it makes a huge difference in the overall look and feel of the box. Do you recognize that Red Cedar? That was the last of it.

Nice work with the boxes Bill. The flocking looks exceptional.
