I’m going to call this my first “serious” woodworking project. Everything else I’ve done has been goofing around, skill building, or building out my shop. This box is the first time I’ve actually tried to make something “quality” to give away as a gift, so its pretty special to me at least, even if it’s not perfect.
This is a pretty common band saw box design from that popular book everyone but me seems to have- there are many like it but this one is mine :)
I made a few mistakes, including cutting out the drawer a bit too sloppy for my tastes and making the front and back of the drawer too thin to shape properly. I solved that by cutting the front of the drawer off and replacing it with a scrap piece I scribed perfectly from my box opening. I’m pretty sure this makes it not a true band saw box out of one hunk of wood, but I like how it turned out.
