This is my latest attempt at a band saw box.
It’s true that the more you do the more you learn.
This has come a long way since my first one.
It is a birthday present for a friend.
It is made from oak.
This is also my first attempt at coating the inside with flock.
I was a little nervous that I was going to ruin it as I was applying the flock.
It has one coat of tung oil, four coats of wipe on poly and a layer of paste wax.
Thanks for looking.

Very nice! I like how you highlighted the opening on the top right rather than just gluing it back together. Your friend will be very happy with it, I’m sure!

Really nice. One question…how do you attach the felt?

You can see a good video of how focking works here.

Thanks for the compliments everyone.
I don’t really like to cut into the wood to make the drawer and then glue the cut back together.
I find no matter how careful you are, you can still see the cut mark.
So I always like to pronounce the opening to add to the frame of the box.
I also find that, unlike my first ones, I now round over all edges with 1/8” router bit to give it depth, including the handle.

I have to thank everyone on this site, as I would never even know about these things if it were not for you.
Thanks again.
