Bandsaw box number 4
My 6 yr old grandson is into the Angry Birds. So Grandma says I should make a box for him with the bird image since his sister is getting a Hello Kitty box for Easter. Made from a walnut limb piece the sapwood to frame (nest?) the bird shaped drawer. Finished with Watco Danish Oil and paste wax. The Big Box ‘Walnut’ Wood filler used on gaps from a limb exit on the base was a poor match.

The overhead light makes the black acrylic around the eyebrows and beak have a blue shading in the picture.

I’m always mystified at the number of bandsaw boxes posted to LJ… most of which I don’t really care for. HOWEVER, this IS DIFFERENT!! AWESOME.. love it… what a cute and clever idea.. I like how you used the color of the wood to inspire bomb bird!

Killer stuff, awesome man

That is really cool. There seems to be no limit to what you can do with band saw boxes. Nice work!
