After your kind words on my first bandsaw box I had to try another!
This one is red oak and poplar laminated into a 4”x4”X10” block. Finish is Watco Ducth Oil rubbed on and 2 coats of poly sanded between coats. Pulls are unstained poplar. I really like the grain pattern on the front. Didn’t get as much contrast as I would have liked between the two woods after I stained them with the dark walnut color, but I wanted to go dark to hide some of the burn marks the bandsaw blade left. Am considering lining the drawers with some felt. Hate to hide wood though, even if it is a little burnt! Overall I am quite pleased with the box and will certainly make some more of these little nifties.
Please feel free to leave positive/negative comments, I enjoy the feedback and your ideas, suggestions, and wisdom will only make me better in the long run. Thanks for looking.
