Earlier in the year my in-laws gave me a nice slab of walnut that they weren’t going to use for much of anything…..I decided to give it back to them. I hope they don’t mind that I cut it all up :)

This was my third box and I finally feel I did a pretty good job of sanding and finishing this one. now it is time to branch off from patterns in a book to blaze my own trail.

Thanks for looking

John, It looks good. I don’t think they will mind at all that you cut it all up.

John, this is an interesting design that sort of reminds me of 3-radishes or 3-onions in a row.

Great piece of walnut that you’re returning in improved condition!

I finished my first bandsaw box shortly before Christmas as a gift, but have not yet posted it… Just got done blogging about the entire process though.

Have fun blazing your own trail now. I certainly had fun coming up with my own rendition of the bandsaw box.

Did you line it with felt, or use a flocking kit?

Well done. Heading in your own direction will be fun, that is why bandsawn box making is so popular.

Thanks for sharing, I look forward to seeing your new works posted at LJ’s

This is nice, a very interesting design. I’m curious, are you planning to add handles (pulls)? How do you get the drawers open?

The design is from Sculpted Band Saw Boxes by Lois Keener Ventura. Their are finger “grabs” on each drawer where the slots are.

They are getting it back in much better shape. Nicely done. Hard to beat Walnut.
