Finally got a chance to see if I could screw up a band box. Steve’s right you can’t…unless you are trying to make it look like an animal. Hint if you don’t name what kind of animal it is, YOU CAN’T GO WRONG TOO. I made three different compartments for storage and gave it to my 15 yr old daughter. Hope you all enjoy.

Looks like a horse to me.
I haven’t tried making a bandsaw box yet.

Now that is a cool bandsaw box! It opens an entire new design aspect I never thought of. Great job on this.

Well done, why not call it a “trumour”, part animal part mythical creature?

(Here in Australia, the word “trumour” is a combination of the words true and rumour, when things are thought to be one part true and one part rumour)
