Another box from Lois Ventura”s Sculpted Band Saw Box book, her first publication. This one is the single drawer called Tsunami made from walnut , cherry, bird eye maple and rosewood. This was the last of six laminated glue up and my favorite thus far. Thanks for viewing …Blkcherry

Beautiful work! How long have you been woodworking? My hope is that after i can get all the essential tools (granted that would take up my entire garage) i will be able to create such a piece. How long did it take you?

Thanks LJ’s for you kind remarks…Smoke I’ve worked in the trades my hole life from rough in work to finish trim work. The woodworking bug has been in my blood since middle school. This box has around 8 hrs of work start to finish but many years of hard knock behind it. I love using hand tool which play’s heavy on the fine tuning of the curve on this style of boxes. My new band saw out fitted with the Carter Stabilizer and Timber Wolf blade make fast work of the major cut out. Thanks again Blkcherry

Great box!! I’m curious, the sharp angle in the upper left – did you back the blade out and come at it from the other direction? or were you able to do it in one continuous cut?

Shopmania you right, this is the technique the author uses..and this is one of the great benefit of the Carter Stabilizer since the blade is not trap by any guide bearing you can back out of any cut with ease…Blkcherry
