Had this piece of 1 1/2” stock lying around and decided to glue it up and make a Bandsaw box. The box is 10 3/4” long and 2 7/8” high by 4 1/2” deep. I just sliced the top and bottom off and cut the inside out on the bandsaw. Finish is Watco Danish Oil and Wipe on Poly. Now that the weather is improving, I’ll get back to work in the shop a little more.

Very nice work. How did you hide the entrance or is it under the lid in the picture? We go to the shop when the weather gets bad up here ;-))

Nice work. I find lidded and open trays are a good seller.

Bill, I am sure this was a fun project and a good way to use up those pieces of scrap that we just can’t bear to part with.

Nice looking piece.

I can’t see if you’ve done it already, but
could you slice off a little of the cut out ‘inside’ piece and glue it to inside of the top to locate the top in place, or would there be too much clearance caused by the blade kerf – so it it was a ‘sloppy’ fit.

I suppose it depends how much the ‘side’ section closed up when the saw blade entrance gap was eliminated.

I hope the above makes sense LOL

Thanks for all of your comments, I appreciate them

TopamaxSurvivor, the entrance/exit slice is on the back side (of the photo). It really isn’t that noticeable though.

Don, I do have a piece glued to the lid (underside) to make a nice fit. What I did was mill a piece of the same material that the box is made from down to about 1/8t”. I then turned the box upside down, before I glued on the bottom, and traced the opening for the lid onto the scrap piece, then cut that to fit exactly in the opening. Results – great fitting lid. I agree with you, I hate a sloppy fit on my lids.
