A buddy of mine is an ol’ surfer dude from way back. When I was making a band saw box a while back, my buddy asked me is I could make him a band saw box shaped like a wave.

This got the “Lets make something new.” juices flowing. I came up with a general wave design shape then glued up some sections of wood to make a block. To add to the wave look, I used plywood in the middle to emphasize motion. The wave design was fun and pretty easy to cut out and finish. I took the project one step further, designing the drawer to look like a surfboard. The drawer pull is a piece of a beech biscuit, sanded down and shaped like a skeg. Thanks to my wife for the idea to use the biscuit.

Let’s face it the drawer isn’t good for much, it’s art.

Man, I like everything about this BS box. Really clever design and I can actually feel the wave.

And the drawer shaped like a surfboard is very cool but the handle shaped like a rudder puts it over the top. It’s called a skeg? Your buddy must have been thrilled to get this box handmade by you.

Great design and you are right – it is art.
