This was my first attempt at a bandsaw box. I used the plan available at the “Woodworking for Mere Mortals” website. Made out of purple heart and maple and finished with 4 coats of lacquer. That purple heart is some hard stuff to sand. Broke 2 bandsaw blades cutting this out. The first was probably on me…trying to use a 1/2” blade to make too tight a turn. The other I think was a bad weld. It snapped while I was doing some sanding and not even using the bandsaw. Maybe I had the tension too high but I don’t think so. Anyway…it was a gift for the wife…a little late but she liked it. Thanks for looking!
