Recently I bought a new bandsaw and decided to make my wife a bandsaw box, to justify the new saw. It never hurts to build your wife something with the new power tool. The dark wood is walnut and the lighter wood is Mahogany.

Craig, this is a gorgeous box. You chose some nice wood to work with and the box has a nice design to it.
Of course it is always a good idea to make your wife something with a new tool. Who knows she might even let you get another one. :)

You did well for your first bandsawn box. Your choice of the timber blend and proportions is great, well done. I look forward to seeing more of your new found source of woodworking fun ~ making bandsawn boxes.

Craig,Very nice Pisces box! I love that design and have made several of them myself for gifts. I haven’t used Mahogany on a bandsaw box yet. Is it a friendly wood for this kind fo project or were there issues?
Keep up the great work!

To All: Thanks for all the nice comments. As far as the choice of wood, I went to Menards (Midwest Big Box Store) to get a piece of wood for this project and they had Mahogany on sale. I originally intended to do the whole project in Mahogany, but after cutting the blanks I thought it needed a contrasting wood, so I chose Walnut. This is only the second project I have used Mahogany on and I found it quite easy to work with. I don’t have a ready supply of it so probably won’t use it much in the future.

Looks Good! Take a look at my box if you want to see a design not in any of the books.
