Finally some free time with the new band saw, so I gave it ago with some band saw boxes. I purchase the Carter Stabilizer guide just for this project and it was well worth it. I would like to post a review about it in the near future. These will make for some nice Valentine Day gifts, maybe filled with some choice treats. Hope you enjoyed viewing and thanks for taking a peek…Blkcherry

Wow, Blackcherry. In Kentucky venacular you dun gud! These are really nice looking boxes. I have been meaning to try these as well. They look like a lot of fun to do. But I guess I have to get initiated into the box club first. :)

I have been thinking about one of those stabilizers for some time. I think you just sold me. Nice work and you will make somebody very happy if you give these as gifts.

I have yet to try laminating different timbers… all my bandsaw boxes are in the one timber…these look great and the square edges are different to the rounded ones usually seen on these boxes.. less margin for error in the cutting… well done…

Great boxes, Blackcherry! You mentioned using the stabilizer. I have one of those, but didn’t use it on my boxes, and your cuts are better. What blade you used (mfg – width – tpi?). Thanks!

Hey Dave, I use the Timber Wolf 3/16 4tpi, they make some great blade. They also have a one time ordering special buy 3 blades any size and get the 4th free. There re saw blades are some of the best out on the market. Thanks again for your post on the miter gauge, very nice idea…Blkcherry
