Hey Everyone – I’ve lurked here for a long time, thought I’d throw in a project of my own.

Pretty standard bandsaw box – it was my first kick at the cat and I learned a lot of what not to do the next time around.

Purple heart, maple, and black walnut. Lacquer finish.

Nice job. That’s one of the best bandsaw boxes I’ve seen.

Very pretty. I love the wood color contrast. Very nice job.
