This is the first BS box I’ve made in over 20 years. I forgot how much fun these are to cut, and then what a pain the you back end these are to sand smooth. I ordered new Timberwolf bandsaw blades after making this box. Might cut down on some of the sanding. Hope you like it.

Box body made of Mahogany and Ambrosia figured maple front and back. Drawer handle of Mahogany. Finish of wiping varnish and paste wax.
