This is my first attempt at a bandsaw box. It from a solid piece of red cedar. I sanded it to 320 grit and finished it with Deft spray Lacquer. Only a couple of little problems with it, BUT I HAD FUN! I did just get a 14” Jet bandsaw and a rigid sander and planer all were very useful with this project. Any comments are welcome. Thanks for looking. Russell

Nice box. I like the wood grain pattern. I haven’t tried making one out of a solid block of wood yet.

Looks like you just got one crack in the wood. When I build with cedar, it seems to crack all over the place. Nice job on it.

Hey Don that Cedar was cracked before I started. I have had it in the basement for about 1 year. I am going to do more of these, I like the way it turned out.

That grain pattern on the sides is sweet!

Good looking box, I’m not a master on these either. So it will be interesting to hear what they say so I can learn as well. Keep it up!

Good use of a block containing pith. Not much else to do with pith. Good idea!

Nice Job, I also just purchased a Jet 14” bandsaw. I think I might have to try my hand at a bandsaw box now…...better watch SteveinMarin’s video again.
