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.

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...
