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.

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.
