This is my first band saw box. I wanted to design something myself so I did a running draft horse with three drawers and double horseshoe drawer pulls. It took a bit of fine finagling to balance the bottom/feet just right so the weight of the head didn’t tip the whole box forward. I lined the drawers with royal purple flocking. It was my first time doing that as well and it was way more fun than I thought it would be. I want every color of the rainbow now.

This box measures 7-1/2” x 6-3/4” x 3-1/4”.

Materials: Birds eye maple, mahogany, sycamore, and wenge.

First box wow, I can’t even begin to imagine what the next ones will look like. I don’t know if you can top this one. Give it a try anyway, will be looking forward to see it.

Excellent design. I like those horse shoes as pulls – great idea.
