This is a bandsaw box I made out of Ambrosia Maple. It was a project done for a woodworking course over at the University of New Hampshire. The top two drawers (on the sides) are semicircles which have a handmade lazy susan mechanism attached to the bottom. The middle drawer is similar to that you may see on a tackle box. The drawer pulls out and two top compartments can be lifted aside to reveal a larger drawer underneath. The bottom drawer is a standard drawer, nothing special.

The finish is Bush Oil which is a great finish if any of you are looking for a new finish to try. It is similar to the Watco finishes but I feel that I get a better finish using the Bush Oil. This box holds all my pen blanks and kits so now I’m one step closer to having an organized shop!

Thanks for looking. Comments and suggestions are always welcomed.

OH my, that has to be one of the coolest looking projects i have seen in quite some time. Man what talent, i like the embellishments with the lay-ins. Very nice looking and professional looking project.

Wow, you could make a living at that bro, i know it may be more sweat and effort than one is willing to execute many times over, as with most intense woodworking projects in which case this one appears to have been. However, it turned out very nice.

I really like it.
