I’m in awe. What a beautiful and well executed piece. The woods you used are stunning. I particularly like the way you set back the middle drawer from the front face to make it appear to be almost “floating”.
BTW, how long do you think it will take for your sanding arm to recover?

That is really nice! I like the way you removed wood under the front part of drawer 2. It adds depth and makes it feel more organic. Congrats on a nice job.

Thanks for the terrific & positive comments.
I forgot about 1 Bandsaw box I made many years ago so this would actually be my second but is was so long ago that I forgot about it & don’t have any pictures at this point.
The only bandsaw I had at the time was a little drill powered bench top model & it must have taken close to an hour to cut through the thick Walnut.
I will post more projects when I have time.Thanks againDan

Really nice looking box! I have been looking for a tutorial on band saw boxes, and can’t find one on LJ’s. Am I just missing it?

Great looking bandsaw box. Nice choice of wood. I’m thinking of building the same design for my wife.

Dan, this is a stunning box. It has a nice design to it and it looks to me that the sanding would have been a major challenge on this one. :) You chose a nice complimentary set of woods as well.
