I had been looking at making some band saw boxes for my family when the plans changed. My dad passed away and I decided I could make one for my mom with a hidden drawer for something special like his wedding ring.

It is made from walnut, maple and some burr oak that was harvested out at the farm. It also has a hidden drawer lined with velvet held in by magnets.

It isn’t quite as good as I would like it but pretty good for a first try.

My condolences on the loss of your Dad.

Very nice work. It is beautiful and the hidden drawer is pretty clever.

WOW, did you design all of it yourself? Or is this a concept and you modified it to the shapes/etc. you wanted? I wouldn’t even begin to know how to make this.. amazing work, esp for a first ‘try’ !

Thanks for the kind words. I don’t think I copied any other design. There are aspects of it that I stole from other boxes so the design may have been stolen as well.

Have your say...
