First Bandsaw box

Hello, it seems there is very often bandsaw boxes posted on here. Some are mediocre at best, some are really amazingly good. Hopefully, mine fits somewhere in between there!
This is my first real attempt at a bandsaw box. The body is solid hard maple, and the handles are purpleheart.
This is also my first ever attempt at flocking. It’s pretty fool proof and turned out very well.
The top drawer is a single compartment, and the bottom drawer has 2.
The whole thing is about 11” long, 5” wide, and 5” tall (roughly).
The finish is just simple Danish oil.

Thanks for looking and posting your comments.

Excellent, Boom.

I’m glad to hear the flocking was fairly easy. I’ve been wanting to try it on some of my boxes, but was afraid it would be a messy disaster.

Looks good to me! Oh, and I make a point of adding anyone named “Ryan” to my buddy list… Guys named Ryan who do woodworking need to band together! Consider yourself added…

Thanks guys,
Diggerjack, I don’t think here is the place to describe the technique used to make this box. There are plenty of books and on-line articles that will help you out with that.

Charlie, the flocking really was very easy, just follow the directions exactly and tape off anywhere you don’t want the adhesive to be.

Ryan, you bet!

Looks real good to me. I can only hope my first one will turn out as well, still getting used to the bandsaw for now.
