This is my first attempt at a band saw box. I downloaded a template from He had an inlay in his plans, but I haven’t tried anything like that yet. I really enjoyed this project so I may go ahead and buy his book on the subject!

One thing i did different…. I use the waste hollowed out from the drawer to turn the knob. Turned out pretty well and matches the theme of the box.

Nice job on the box and good idea re-using the drawer cut out for the knob.

I made a few of this style over the holidays to put in my gallery. All the boxes sold except these. I guess my buyers didn’t think much of the plywood look.
Personally, I like it!

FYI, yours looks great!

I like it well.

I do believe that decent wood is to nice to just waste. My scraps are burned either in the fireplace for heat or in the fire pit for entertainment.

What will and will not sell seems to change a lot. Sometimes I seem to do well with an item and others it just does NOT sell.

Good luck on it.

Thanks all. I’ve yet to make anything to sell but if stuff starts piling up I’ll have to do something with it! Plus maybe it will support my habit a little!
