This is an attempt at a band saw box using some scraps. The body of the box uses spalted beech. The legs and handle are done in iron wood or muscle tree as we call it here in Louisiana (Wild maple). If you know what I’m talking about, those things aren’t very big but will dull a chainsaw! The finish is sprayed poly with cordova leather bottom.

Very pretty…looks like a successful attempt to me.

Rick, this box sure did turn out nicely.
