This is my first attempt at a bandsaw box with my newly acquired jet 14” bandsaw (Craigs List). It is made from hard maple and wenge for the stripe and the handle. The pattern is from Lois Ventura’s book. Finished with 4 coats of spray lacquer rubbed with 0000 steel wool in between, and wax on top. The drawer is flock with “wine” color. My thanks to local fellow Lumberjock “Huff” for the wenge, the flocking, and his helpful input on finishing, etc. Thanks Huff! This was a gift for my wife for Valentines Day. She likes it, along with the jewelry that came inside.
On my first attempt to cut the back off the “sandwich”, I quickly realized that I needed a new blade. All my research indicated that Timberwolf was the way to go. I got a 1/2 inch 3 tpi for the resaw on the back, and a 3/16 4 tpi for the scrolling work. They worked great! I’m a believer! Ordered them Monday, got them Friday, gave it to her on Sunday, so this was a quick build. It was a lot of fun, and as usual, I learned a lot! Can’t wait to try again!
