My first attempt at a bandsaw box. Question: This is made with bass wood. What should I finish it with? Also what glue is the best for this type of project? TKS

I love these boxes, can’t wait to get a bandsaw so I can try to make one.
You have done a great job with yours.

I like it….but I’m embarrased to ask…..what’s a bandsaw box? And is it simply something cool to look at at, or does it have a specific purpose?

Well Jeff some of them with drawers are useful. The one I made is just a conversation peace. In other words it’s useless as boobs on a boar.

I’ve done a lot of carving using basswood. Basswood takes color well, but I would stay away from stain. A lot of carvers use Deft finish.

Nice boobs, I mean box, there Dudley. I use Titebond III on my boxes. For finish, I use the Beall system. It is a very convenient setup. Here’s a URL for reference:

Dudley,

VERY cool. I’ve made a couple of these, and they are a fun project. Yours is the first one I’ve seen to make use of a sliding lock top. Gotta love it. Nice job.

I’ve finished both of mine with spray lacquer, FWIW. Never used basswood, but I imagine lacquer would work fine.
