So while taking this semester off from school, I needed something to do so I decided to look up what you can do with a bandsaw, seeing as thats really the only major woodworking tool I own at this point. I ran across bandsaw boxes and thought I’d give them a try.

Boxes #1, #2, and #4 in that order (#3 is still being finished)

#1 and #2 are made out of Ginkgo from my front yard. The snake is hand carved.

#4 is baltic birch VC plywood and Cherry finished with a bunch of coats of poly. The ivy leaves are my first real attempt at relief carving.

Thanks for looking

These are some nice looking boxes that you have created. I have a bandsaw box on my to do list and it looks like you had a lot of fun doing these. The carvings add some nice details to the boxes as well.

skelatile, I really like what you did with your boxes. Very unique designs, especially the snake. That really adds a whole new dimension to them. Very nice.

WOW, The snake boxes are a great variation. Nice carving. Ive already goofed up my first attempt at a band saw box. But I’m headed back to the shop right now.
