I recently acquired a bandsaw for the shop – can’t believe it took me this long to get one. I started out with some pretty basic projects, simply wanting to get comfortable with the equipment before venturing out a bit more. As a result there’s nothing too crazy here, and nothing you haven’t seen already. As always, I’m learning very quickly what NOT to do – always the most valuable lesson.

Chicago-style box is red oak with Peruvian walnut and a padauk pull.

Chest is a combination of Peruvian walnut, mahogany, plywood, and wenge.

Tung oil used to finish just because.

The squared one is my favourite due good matching colours.

Good job on your first bandsaw boxes. I like the combination of the different woods and the different styles.

I threw my first one away, but I learned alot from that one box.
