Here is a my first attempt at a bandsaw box. It is made from a piece of oak burl which I found on my land. It is finished with 5 coats of american walnut poly.

That box turned out really well dad! That poly really brought the grain out.

Wish I could find a piece of wood like that in my backyard.

Did you use a box router bit to hollow out the inside?
