Sorry jewelers, FTD and Hallmark. I don’t need you. My valentine gets a more meaningful handmade gift. (especially since work is slow and money’s tight). Anyway, here’s my version of the cracked bandsaw box. Looks a lot like the others don’t it? I wanted really tight fits on the drawer fronts but now I’m thinking I shoulda softened the corners to hide the cut marks. I’m gonna make her bring it back and help me flock the drawers once I get some flocking.

This is so cool, I’ll bet she loves it to. I was thinking of making one of these some day. Yours is real good, nice work. These remind me of furniture you would see in the movie Alice in wonderland.

Thanks for the compliments. Oh, the size is 14” tall by 6” wide by 4 1/2” deep. The plans and pattern are floating around if you want to search it. I just took the basic dimensions and free handed the shapes. Pretty challenging for my first box. The band saw sure got a good workout.

My wife told me she would rather have a card. Nice box. Creative!
