This is my first bandsawn box and I’m pretty please with how it turned out. It is made from some African Mahogany I bought at a yard sale a couple years ago. (pretty cheap I might add!) It’s stained with some Minwax stain (I forgot which one, to be honest) and it’s finished with MW Semi gloss Poly. I couldn’t decide what to do for a drawer pull, so I just cut out a little shape and stuck it on there. Kinda looks cool I think. Well, I hope you enjoyed this; I know I did!

Nice job, no matter how many you’ve done.

One thing I love about band saw boxes is that creativity is required at every stage of the project. Nothing about them is “standard” and nothing gets shoehorned into a notion of “supposed to be.” Creativity selects your material, tailors your design, orients your grain, works around the secrets disclosed with each cut, teases out a custom interior, and puts on a satisfying finishing touch.

Thanks for sharing it.

It’s a nice box and I like the style. Good work.
