February, 2012—I suppose a band saw box can be made from just about anything. This started out as a cedar board purchased from Home Depot’s scrap pile for 51-cents. I chopped it and glued it to make a block to work with. Of course cedar has that familiar smell and is easy on the nose. It is a softer wood so it cuts very easily. And files and sands easily too. Almost too easily!
Cedar has some of the characteristics of pine. I put multiple coats of semi-gloss poly on this. The first coat raised the grain, so sanding needed. The second coat raised the grain, so sanding needed. By the third coat we were almost there.
The knobs are little wood buttons from a craft store, left over from another project.
