I have wanted to get into box making for a while now, so i made these two prototypes in order to test the water.
I made the bandsaw box out of some cedar pickets i had left over from my fence. This was my first time to ever use a band saw and i think im hooked. The pulls are made from curly maple and purple heart. (cuttoff that a friend had laying around) Thanks Big D.
The other box is made out of pine and walnut. I never intended to complete the box, (which is why i chose pine) I was just trying my hand at miter keys and barbed hinges.
On the bandsaw box, I am totally open to suggestions on sanding. I purchased a sanding drum kit for my drill press that worked pretty good, but i would like to explore alternatives. (spindle sander is not in my budget)
thanks for looking
