Helllo LJ’s, here a run of band saw boxes from Lois Ventura’s famous band saw box book. I went a little over board on this run no pun intended. Using a variety of figured woods from B.E. Maple, Blk. Walnut , Curly Maple, Blk. Cherry, Rosewood, and a wonderful find on Craigslist some Mahogany. I used a French polish for a finish and have yet to finish the inside draw with the decorative lining which may take place over the week-end. These are a start on the holiday stash, hope you enjoy and happy woodworking…BC

Wonderful work, Wilson. You have been busy with these.
What kind of lining will you put in the drawers?

Thanks guys for your input, these B.S. Boxes are quite fun to build and finish as well. Here are some pic’s of the finish.

I hear the music, I like the theme.

Its hard to pick a favourite here. They are all good and the finish is wonderful. The curves are accurately continuous and I like the wood mixes as well.

Good post

Sharon, after doing so many you lose count, est. 20 I quest ,I go til I’m satisfied. The best part of French polish is that you can always revisit and add more coats at a later date and go to extreme polishing brilliants. These were only polished with 400 grit paper. I would like to take them to a 1200 if time permits. Thanks for viewing my friend…BC

Wilson, as others have commented: beautiful boxes with a spectacular finish. These demonstrate the beauty of wood and wood combinations.
