This is a bandsaw box I made from eastern cedar that I dragged home from my daughter’s yard in Virginia. It has a contrasting poplar drawer front. The inside of the drawers are flocked.

this is a beautiful band saw box

I like that it is a uniform shape (as opposed to unusual shape that some boxes are)

and the contrasting draw fronts work well especially with the light edge wood in the cedar

Cathy, this is a gorgeous box. You chose a nice wood combination as well. Cedar is a pretty enough wood in its own right but combining it with poplar gives the box a nice contrast.

What kind of finish did you put on the box?

And, by all means, don’t be shy about showcasing your projects. Pictures of the inside would be nice to see as well.

And, again, welcome to LJs. I am looking forward to seeing more projects like this.

A very very nice bandsaw box. One of the nicer ones I’ve seen in fact.
My only constructive critique (and I hope you take it as positively as I intend it) would be to have the entry points for the drawer cut outs made horizontally, i.e. with the grain, instead of cross grain, to make them less visible. You could even glue them shut then to make them invisible.

Good work.

Thanks for all the comments. That’s a good point about the cut outs. I was trying to avoid having them come from the side. I’ve thought about gluing them shut too as it would close the gap a bit more in the drawer openings. Something to try in the future. I appreciate any suggestions.

Very classy I like the design! You know I think the deisgn would look great as night stands, for that matter a whole bedroom set , it would have a warm contemporary look.
