This Wave band saw box I’m sure everyone has seen before. This is my attempt based on the cover of a book I saw on-line. I ended up flocking the insides of the drawers blue. I shined it up with some tung oil.

I made this with a turning block of Ambrosia Maple that was 4X8X8. Thanks for all the kind comments.

You know, there have been a bunch of these popping up on LJs lately, and this is one of the better ones I’ve seen – nice work!

Great looking box. What kind of wood is it made from and what are the dimensions?

I like that box. I started my second box yesterday after work. It will be for my daughter and we will finish it tonight. It isn’t even close to yours. what kind of wood is it?

Looks great – the top drawers remind me of a pair of eyes – if the lower portion was 1 drawer and curved upwad it would look like a smiling cat. Of course it may be that I’m just strange.

Very nice, I like the idea of using a turning blank to create the box. I’ll have to try that myself.

Very nice box and very fluid grain. I really like how you located the drawers- making the initial cuts in all different places. You have inspired me to make one so I started one to see if I could do it…......Thanks for sharing

ps. I was just noticing how you kept the alignment of the grain so good on the front. When you made the drawers did you cut off the fronts and backs or the bottoms to cut out the inside? I made mine by cutting off the bottom of the drawer and lost a bit of wood so I had to run the drawers on skids to keep the spacing more even.
