This is my first-ever bandsaw box. I used Black Walnut and Soft Maple for the laminated body. I included the lighter sapwood from the Black Walnut, which I think gives it a bit of a heavier feel at the base and lighter at the top. I use Red Oak for the handle, which I cut out on the bandsaw and shaped using an oscillating edge/spindle sander. The drawer is lined with adhesive-backed black felt. The finish is boiled linseed oil followed by about 5 coats of shellac. Overall, I am quite pleased with how the box turned out. I made it for my wife for her birthday and she loves it!
