Finally went for it this weekend!!!!
I’ve had this pattern awhile and haven’t had the nerve to try it
I finally gave in and tried it. Now a whole new realm has opened up for me!
Band Sawn boxes!
I used walnut poplar and alder!
I haven’t flocked the drawers yet but will when the poly cures completely.
So here it is my first box!
OH and I made they jewelry thats in it too!

Nice work!!! Good color configuration. What size blade did you end up using? Did any of my tips help out?

I used a 3/16” blade on a 9” Ryobi band saw!
I was able to use a bigger blade since there were no real tight turns in this pattern!
Slow cutting but turned out good!
Yes the tips helped! I thought and studied a long time before attempting
this one! now a whole new world has opened up and i have tons of scraps
to create endless designs. next one will be my own design now that I know
how it all works!
