This bandsaw box was a new one I wanted to try. It is from Lois Keener Venturas book Sculpted Band Saw Boxes. It is made out of walnut, maple, paduak, and oak with emerald green flocking. First time using paduak and I really like color. Thanks for looking.

Box looks great. I like the open ends for cutting out the draws.

The colors really blend well on this. A very nice box and like the use of the cutouts as drawer pulls.

This is very nice looking bandsaw box.I also like this red paduak (padouk). I intend to make some. Can you tell me, please, dimensions of this box in centimeters since I must buy a bandsaw and I don’t know if the one with 10 cm max cutting height will be sufficient or I must buy bigger with 18-21 cm max cutting height.

I used a Grizzly G0555 band saw which has a throat size og 13.5 Inches (34 cm). The bandsaw box is 26 cm wide x 13 cm high x 15 cm deep. The bigger bandsaw would probally be the way to go. You could make a scaled down version with the smaller one. Hope this helps.
