Bandsaw box for the mother in law, Mothers Day 2011. Made of cedar. Learned a lot from this one. I made the top very thin due to my bandsaw table being out of level and excessive sanding. I then proceeded to spray some water on top to raise the grain and continue sanding. The water really weakened the wood and I wound up cracking the top. Had to do some intricate glueing and careful clamping to save the project. Worked out well and nobody was the wiser. Lessons learned.
