This is my first attempt for making a bandsaw box. Thanks to all the blogs and posts on LJ that discussed how to make them.

These ‘jewelry’ boxes are for my twin daughters. Their birthday is coming up at the end of February and this is one of their presents. They are made from birds eye maple, walnut, and cherry. They were finished with 2 coats of Waterlox Original and 2 coats of Waterlox Gloss finish.

Thanks for looking.
