I was inspired to build this box after seeing my mothers jewerly box she had on her dresser, she’s had it for several years, Matching the spalted hackberry with the walnut I think worked very well as I’d hoped it would, I used Knotty Alder for the core of the box then used the hackberry for front and back then walnut to hide the edge grain along with base and top, the top I used spalted hackberry in the center to carry the front over and trimed it with walnut miter joints, it has 5 drawers the larger center drawer has my signiture hidden drawer in it and also a neckless drawer with 4 hooks I built this drawer with a wrap at the bottom to contain the loose end of the chain/neckless, it is flocked in a dark brown. Measurements are 7 3/4” W x 12” H x 4 1/2” D

Edit in:
I forgot to add that the bottom drawer will become a ring drawer, not shown in pictures.

Thanks for viewing

I like what you did on this one Randy. Those two woods look great together. I just picked up my mail and the Cater Stableizer is here….can’t wait to try it out on those tight turns.

Thanks Larry, you’ll love it, good thing about it is you no longer have to worry about adjusting the guides both top and bottom as you no longer will need them.

I noticed the instructions say something about moving the guides back…did you remove them from the saw?

The top guides you have to, the bottom I just moved them back all the way as once you kick that blade out 1/8” it will push it further away from the bottom anyway.

What a great box. Love the color. You are very talented.
I got excited about the box I made today. It’s pretty simplistic compared to yours. I’m still excited. But This is awesome.

Thanks Joseph, I was looking through your profile saw you harvesting that large tree :) The hackberry you see in all of my boxes I cut myself with my chainsaw here locally, I then milled them into workable blocks.

Blackie, I really like to make bandsaw boxes too, and the hackberry is slick – the design is too.
Can you give us a ballpark figure on the dimensions?

I don’t know all the terminology yet… When you say you “milled them into workable blocks” what exactly do you mean?

Oops sorry Ray I forgot to add that, I’ll edit it in with the orginal posting.

Thanks

Angie, I can take a tree log say 14” Dia and cut it into boards or blocks of wood that is what is meant by milling such as a saw mill, I use my 14” bandsaw for a sawmill. A bandsaw is one great tool to have in your shop it’s my favorite. You can also google saw mill and get an idea of what they are, please let me know if you have any more question, more then glad to help.

One thing to consider is that the wood has to be dry in order to work it as green wood will move and sometimes even split during the drying process so I sit on the logs for a good spell and don’t work them until they are dry.

Randy, you are becoming the king of the band saw box. Nice work here. I like the new ideas you are coming up with to keep your work interesting. The necklace drawer is a neat idea, especially since it has a “cup” in the bottom. The drawer within a drawer is a nice idea as well. Thanks for taking us along on your creative journey. Keep boxing and keep posting. They sure are fun to see.

Angie, you should post a couple pictures of the box you made….let us all have a look see. Bandsaw boxes any boxes are allot of fun to make…then when you let your mind wonder around a bit, you never know what you might come up with. We have many wonderful box builders on this site.
