This was my first attempt at a Band-saw Box and over all I’m pretty happy with it, though I learned very quickly some of the do’s and don’ts of the process. This is made from two pieces of Black Walnut with the sap wood turned in-ward to give it that stripe. I used sticky backed felt for the inside and beads for the pulls. I also used a black felt on the inside cavities for the drawers to slide on which also helped to center the drawers up. When my granddaughter opened up this Christmas present she was so existed about it that she didn’t even notice for over 30 minutes that it was the first three letters of her name which made it that much more special for her.
