This was my first box after getting the new bandsaw last Christmas. I made it for my wife and she loved it. I learned a lot from making this box. Now that I have learned more how to do it, every time i walk by it I want to fix some of the things i notice. She won’t let me touch it. Guess she’s sentimental that way. Made out of walnut and somethinerother. Spray lacquer finish.

The other looks a little like pine, but that don’t matter. Very nice for a first. I couldn’t tell the back from the front with my first one.

Looks good, I’ve made a few and I can see it does take practice

It is a good first try. I know you can do a lot better. I learned so much on my first I did 10 more and added inlay. It seems for me the learning is more fun, exciting than the product.
