Well done!! I’ve done a lot of BS boxes and I must say that that is one of the nicest I’ve seen.

Usually bandsaw boxes seem relegated to the realm of amateur projects. This is most definitely not the case here! That’s a very well polished design and execution.

Thanks for the nice comments! I am guilty of watching in the wings here and decided that I should contribute something! I made that box for the wife for Valentines day and she didnt like it! She wants a jewelry armoire instead so it sits in the shop still! Will try to post some more in the future.

I spend allot of time designing different boxes and then figureing out how to tackle cuts that are too big for the saw throat!
