I think I have made all the bandsaw boxes from Carmichael Workshop

I hate when I get ahead of myself and cut the drawer out prior to cutting off the back of the box, believe me I have done this more than once.

1) walnut and purple heart
2) cherry and paduk

Thanks for looking

They look nice.. Why not change the design and put a pull on both sides. It will never be backwards ;-)

nice boxes – sometimes my boxes have a different color back or the same color as the center, you’ll probaby never guess why ? lol

I cut the drawer too soon sometimes too. I just glue on a separate piece for the back. If you don’t want the extra thickness because of a center stripe or something, just cut off the back of the box and drawer anyway. A drawer pull on both sides is very cool though.
