Had this piece of Redbud block of wood calling my name so I took a blade to it and this is what I came up with. It has 3 drawers with one hidden drawer making it a total of 4 drawers. Measurements are 9” x 4” x 3”

Jim I’ve been averaging around 4 boxes a week, but you have to take into consideration that I am retired and that’s all I do. :) never will you find me sitting in front of the TV :)

A blog I’ll try and work it in, right now all my spare time is tied up with trying to build a personal website for a store front.

Thanks Angie

Art thanks, I really like that Redbud it is a beautiful wood, to bad it doesn’t grow bigger then it does. My dad will be cutting down a fairly large on sometime at the end of this year and you bet I’ll be getting that trunk as far up as I need.

Larry google redbud trees and you’ll see what I’m talking about.

If I’m not mistaking I believe it’s Oklahoma’s state tree.

And Monte it’s very easy on the blades too. ;-)

This is amazing! When I see beautiful boxes created with a band saw, the more I long to do woodworking. I wish I had this kind of skill.

Larry I don’t think it’s sold commercially but I could be wrong, let me know if you find any I’d like to do the same.

You are on a roll with all the cool woods, most of which aren’t readily available commercially. This makes your boxes EXTRA special. Another question: what width and TPI blade are you using? You are cutting some pretty tight radii.

Andy I get my 3/16” 14 TPI blades from a local supplier called Weather Ford Company at a very nice low price I’m also using the carter stabilizer, as for as the woods I use I’m lucky enough to stumble across them from time to time and yes you are right about them being special once they are gone they are gone. I still have several small blocks of it left, thing about Redbud and why it’s not sold commercially is due to it’s size they don’t get very big.
