Here is my second bandsaw box I made. Gave this one to my wife on her birthday. Made it out of maple igot from the reclaim store and some Mayan walnut. I got lucky with the grain texture on either side of the walnut. My little 10” Rikon bandsaw with cheap Olsen blades struggled to complete this project. I will be moving up to the 17” Grizzly as soon as the funds are in hand. Believe it or not she was willing to trade this for the tulips. The bottom 2 drawers have ring holder and the vertical drawers can hold small necklaces or bracelets. Finished it with boiled linseed oil. First time ever using that. The maple really soaked the stuff up. Not sure if I got enough on the end grain around the outside of the box.

It’s a beautiful bad saw box! Why trade it in for the tulip’s when she can have both?
Nice work all around!

If you called this a ‘struggle’ to make with your old Band saw, I’ll bet the wife will only be to happy to help you get the newer band saw. This is amazing to say the least, if it is only your second box! You’re gifted there.
Me thinks you have a lot of prior wood working talent!
I too like the flowers! Differnt and whimsical!

Just beautiful. And it’s your second box. I just finished my second box and gave it as a birthday gift. But nothing close to what you have. Great job.

Have your say...
