I always wanted to try my hand at making a band saw box and today I did using some Cypress with worm holes in it.

I have been inspired to make a band saw box by all the people that have posted their band saw boxes here on Thank you all for the inspiration!

All I have to do now is decide what finish I want on it. Danish oil might be nice!

More about this here

Nice job and some beautiful cypress. I would love to have some of that. We have big bald cypress trees here but I have never seen a dead one and they never blow down in our storms (but I’m waiting).

Nice cutting… post pics when it has its finish coat. I think Danish oil would be a good choice.

Thank you for all the nice comments!

I went to your web site and looked around! WOW! you are a true craftsman! And thanks for all the nice “hint’s”. I have some plain Western Red Cedar in my shop and I’ll be using that for my next box when I find the time!

About the Cypress wood I used for this box,
When I first saw that sick looking hunk of stump that I made this box from I would never have thought this nice grain wood would emerge from it. I was planning on this being a throw away piece. NOT…!
What’s funny is now I keep thinking about all that dry firewood I burned up over the years when I was younger and now don’t have access to anymore. I’ll bet I burned up some nice treasures!

I feel I have learned that it’s project that determines the way you perceive the wood you will use for your project.
