My first band saw box “Stingray” designed by Lois Keener Ventura. Also my first time to flock, I used Suede Tex. Made from Canary-wood and Teak

WOW that is just awesome work. Is there anyway I could make one like that, that is 12” deep.
Also is there any books or DVD’s I could buy to show me how?

Very nice! I’ve never done bandsawn boxes as they can look clunky. But with the right wood/figure and flowing lines they can look stunning – as with this piece!

What a great looking bandsaw box! I did some flocking recently as well. I need to make one of these box’s soon.

I made one just like this for my daughter I think it is one of Lois’s best designs. The lines are really flowing and beautiful. I made mine with the same wood I think, with dark handles and blue flocking. I think the flocking really adds a nice finishing touch. You did and excellent job with this one, the sanding , finish and drawer gaps all look great! Keep up the good work!

Very nice job. I wish my first one turned out this well.

Miss Gurnie, Flocking is very easy. I would rather do it than use felt sheets any day. Buy the flocking from woodcraft and it has very detailed instructions on how to apply it.

Yes the flocking was very easy just applly the paint and blow in the flocking let it dry dump out the excess.

Nice job! Is it a coincidence that the flocking exactly matches the color used as background in the pics? Or did you get the flock all over the place?LOL
