I loved the look of the cracked bandsaw box that several people have made so I decided to try one myself. I finished it a couple months ago but I just haven’t had the time to post it. It is made out of maple with walnut drawer pulls. I like making these boxes I just wish I had two bandsaws so I didn’t have to switch blades when cutting the backs off. Thanks for looking.

Great work! It looks like it would take A LOT of patience and careful cutting to make that. How tall is it? about 12”?

Just thinking of how you made this is giving me a spliting headache. Just kidding. I have never seen something like this, accept in an architechtural building concept. I really like this project, it shows patience and dedication.

Nice box !!! Looks like a lightning bolt struck it and split it.
