Until recently, working with wood has been synonymous with home improvement for me. We live in a house dating back to 1867 which has needed quite a lot of attention since we moved in 12 years back, and I am too cheap – and fussy – to let anybody else do it. Some years back we started getting close to “finished” with the house, so then we went and bought a farm house (built approx. 1830) to use as a weekend getaway.
So, I’ve done quite a lot of work with wood, but not much woodwork. Now I’m trying to change that.
This is my very first attempt at a band saw box. It was cut from a slab of oak I found in the woodshed. Cut on the bandsaw, glued, assembled and then mounted in the lathe and sanded properly round. Finished with three coats of Danish Oil.
