Two dress shaped band saw boxes, made from pine. Instead of cutting just the back off. I cut the front and back off. But only cut the back off the drawers. Then cut the drawer fronts from the front piece. Left the back piece long and flat to fit into the stands. The stand for the black dress is cherry. Oak for the red dress. Painted finish. Drawers lined with felt.

That’s actually where I got the idea. I was doing a google search for some ideas on bandsaw boxes. Something a little different than your average bandsaw box. When I first saw this dress I thought that it would make a cool bandsaw box. But In order for this to work I would have to do the drawer fronts differently from most bandsaw boxes. It was a fun problem solving project to do.

So instead of an inlay you did an over lay, very nice design.
