The past few months I have been into designing cutting band saw boxes. I found a couple of Gallery’s here on the Island that sell them for me. Some are designs I get from books or the web…with little changes, and others are my own design…turtle and the tree box. Just finished 8 of them along with about 14 wood trivets. Most of the time I use Hawaiian Koa. Those of you that make these know how many hours of sanding go into them. I had a lung problem that put me in the hospital. Now I wear the Trend helmet system that really helps.

Those are some of the best BS boxes I have ever seen. Great Hawaiin themes, especially the turtle. I spent 11 weeks in 09 living on the Turtle Bay Golf Course and that reminded me of the hotel logo.

Excellent work! Like Don said, these are some of the best band saw boxes I’ve seen.

I admire your skill and creativity and and agree the these are some of the best I’ve seen! Did you finish these with tung oil too?

No Lorna, I did not use Tung oil on the boxes. I coat them with brush on lacquer that works great for me since I can re-coat in a couple hours.

Those are sopme original designs – I normally do not look at these since there are so many – however these are original.
