Thank you all for your inspiration, I thought I should use my scraps for something other than feeding the fire. This is my first bandsaw box for my son who is a camera nut. Made it out of black walnut and rock maple and included a hidden drawer. The knurled knobs and lens turn but don’t do much else. On to the next one!!!

Awesome box. I didn’t see the hidden drawer immediately, but a 2nd look proved worth it. Excellent idea.

That is awesome…I’m a camera nut too and I know I’d love this thing. I love how you textured the knobs and the edge of the lens cap. Simply fabulous.

outstanding! They saying being able to take a great picture is all in the mind’s eye. Guess it applies to bandsaw boxes too because you did a great job on your design.

What a great idea – a camera.

What you have scrap pieces?????
you might have to go out and buy an electric heater now, as you wont be keeping warm by the wood fire, no scrap pieces to feed it now!!!!!!
