A recently completed three drawer bandsawn box. It was a gift for a lawyer, thus it’s name.

Each drawer and the knob have an embedded magnet for the opening. A nice selection of Australian Red Cedar.

Very nice, Mate!

Maybe it’s just me, but this box has the shape of a sensuous female form. Think I’d call it Woman.

Very nice Tony. Once I get some resawing done I’m going to be changing the blade on my bandsaw to try my hand at another box.

I don’t know Don….maybe “Chasing Ambulance” would be better…..LOL….sorry I couldn’t resist.

Thanks you to everyone for their kind words of support.

Nicky, I use pure Tung Oil as the base oil, bathe it then set it aside for 4-6 weeks to allow the oil to harden. Then do the fine finish – wet n dry successively up to 1500. Then do the final finish with a cutting polish, known in Australia as Rotten Stone.

Lovely piece. I think it should be titled “Pandora’s Box”. How about a photo showing the whole shebang?

I hope I am correct in my understanding of the word “shebang” as meaning additional images ? and therefore can I provide additional images ~ sorry that is not possible as the work is no longer in my possession.

a little instruction please. how did u use a bandsaw to cut those interconnected shapes. do they go thru the wood,or is there a fixed back. what keeps the round ones from spinning and dimpun the stuff? consider this a request for “LEGAL” aid.
