Band saw Box
This is my first attempt at one of these band saw boxes. In fact, I never even heard of such a thing until I joined the LJ community. After seeing all the great boxes here, I just had to give it a try.
This box is my own design, inspired from the information available at Tony Ward’s web site. His site is fantastic. Lots of information and how to’s, even some free plans.
I wanted to keep it real simple for my first effort. Grabbed a piece of left over 4×4 cedar fence post, drew a few reference lines and went to the band saw. Much to my surprise these little boxes are a lot easier than what I had expected. They also build fast. I was about 4 hours total on mine. Mind you, I could have done a bit better finish on it. Some more sanding for sure. Made a drawer pull from a bit of bass wood scrap, and a couple of coats of wipe on poly and a coat of paste wax and I was ready for some pictures. Not sure what I’ll do with this thing, but maybe one of the kids will want it.
