This is a four drawer band saw box made out of Canarywood. I really like Canary since the colors leap out of the wood when finished!

This is a published design but I changed it up by using a different kind of pull. It gives the box a little more of an antique look. I had just replaced all of the cabinet pulls in our kitchen and these little cramic centers were part of the old stock. I kept the ones that hadn’t been chipped or that were too worn. They found a home here on this box.

The box is 11” tall, 5” wide and about 5” deep. The drawers are flocked with emerald green fibers ( a great and easy system ).

Thanks for taking a look.

Nice box. Nice finish. If I had a band saw it would encourage me into trying something like it.

Charles, this is a wonderful box. And you put a beautiful finish on it as well. This one certainly is an inspiration to get started on one of these. I have been meaning to for some time but just let other projects get in the way. I definately will have to move one of these up on my list so I can join in the fun. It looks you are enjoying making these.

I use a 3/16” blade ideally. If I don’t have one of those around I can usually get through with a 1/4”. Make sure you round the back of the blade no matter what width and cool blocks are a serious plus.

Thanks for the comments folks!
