This is my first attempt at making a bandsaw box. It is made from mesquite harvested from my “backyard”. I am really happy to have found LumberJocks and look forward to a long, learning friendship with all here.

Great looking box. Nice wood choice. What finish did you use, looks great.

Mesquite being one of the hardest of the hardwoods not bad, you did a great job.
