This box design is from Sculpted band saw boxes book.
The front and back is maple burl
The middle is dark walnut
the other layers are poplar and oak
The handles are made of burl also.
They need to change the name of these boxes to sanding boxes! hahahaha!
This box was fun to make and i hope you enjoy the pictures.

All comments are welcome good and bad!
Thank you for your time!

Gorgeous piece. I now have a small idea how these boxes are made. What size of blade do you use? Assuming this is made with a solid wood glue-up, do you cut the inside of the drawers with the bandsaw as well? Tks for sharing.

Thank you tyka!
I used a 3/16” blade timber wolf
It is made from laminated pieces of solid wood!
first i cut the outside of the box and do a basic shape the i want to the front and sides.
Then depending if the back is glued on or taped, i remove it.
The drawers are cut out then the fronts and backs of the drawers are cut then the inside
of the drawers are cut out and glued back together to form a drawer.
The back is then glued on the box.
I then shape the front and sides of the box and drawers.
then sand and sand and sand and sand some more and sand some more…
whaa laaa a dirty dusty box that is ready for the finish shop.
