Hey everyone!
Another project the list of items I published earlier that I wanted to do.
I call this bandsaw jewelry box “porpoise” Now this is a unique box because the one challenge I wanted to do was create a “secret hidden drawer”. Take a close to see where it might be.

It’s behind the the larger drawer when you pull it out. It’s lined with blue felt fibers and made from walnut with maple drawer handles

Not sure what the price will be on this one yet

Nice design. Like it a lot.
That hidden drawer, I used to make them a lot, but soon found out people won’t pay anymore for hidden drawers than they will for a normal box. Design of the box is what they are after. I actually made one with a hidden drawer inside the hidden drawer. Just big enough to hold one diamond ring. Ton of work, got no more for it than one just like it that had no hidden drawers.

There is a guy in Idaho, can’t remember his name, he sells all kinds of bandsaw boxes, (mostly simple designs), for a pretty good price. He does a ton of festivals and fairs. He claims he invented the hidden drawer – NOT…Calls it his patented hidden drawer. No such thing.

Yours looks great.
In my neck of the woods, that would fetch somewhere in the $60-80 range.

I really like that, a lot. Very nice design and well done.

Is there a good video link that describes some techniques to make these type bandsaw boxes? I don’t know, but will do some looking.
