Hi All, Thought I would post another bandsaw box. This one is made from asian satinwood. I made the pattern influenced by many other boxes I have seen, but not quite like anyone in peticular. I tried to add some lines to it by freehand cutting some grooves on the front and back using the bandsaw. The drawer pulls are purpleheart and inside they have red flocking. Measures 5.75” wide 5.5” tall and 2.75” deep. Finish is wipe on poly. Thanks for looking.

-- Donnie-- listen to the wood.

Boy, that is a nice chunk of wood for showing off a bandsaw box.
That is a new design to me. I like it.

Good job,

Really nice. At first it looks like 3 boxes, stacked. But then a closer look reveals the matching grain from box-to-box. This is a good looking box.
