Made of Cherry, Hickory & Walnut. Flocked insides. A little gift for our daughter Toni. Mom put a Pearl ring in a drawer, Toni’s birth stone. Made my cuts in the wrong place & couldn’t get them pulled together tight. I’ll learn. I guess I should have made my cuts from the side. Go ahead, scold me. LOL

Dudley, Cute box! A lot of times when I do a bandsaw box, I will cut from the bottom to the first drawer like you did, but then I will go from one drawer to the next. When I glue the back on, I worry more about closing the gag in the cuts then worrying about aligning the outside edge of the back to the box perfectly. I always cut my outside profile last anyway, so it doesn’t matter if the outside edges don’t line up perfectly. Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing.

Considered your self scolded., lol
You have done a better job than someone who has not attempted one.
Bravo Zulu… there is no such thing as a bad bandsaw box. I am sure Toni adores it.
