This is a maple burl bandsaw box i created last night. I like it a lot except for the seam at the bottom. apparently the box slipped when i was doing the glue-up and so it doesn’t exactly align. My teacher says it might look a little off because the bandsaw blade was pretty wide and therefore it throws off the alignment slightly. the sanding needs to be finished but i think it’s a great try and I am going to try to sell it at the craft show I am attending in December.
The teacher recommended me to finish it with either boiled Linseed oil or danish oil then followed by polyurethane. He thinks the finish will darken the wood and distract anyone from seeing the line.
If anyone has alignment suggestions I’d love to hear them… or if you want to say the line doesn’t bother you and it looks totally awesome… well that’s great too
