These are band saw boxes I made as graduation gifts for my nieces. The first was mahogany with walnut pulls. The second is cherry with a purpleheart pull, and the third is macacauba with wenge pulls. All are finished with clear shellac and several coats of spray lacquer. I used Donjer champagne colored flocking to line the drawers.

All of the designs were taken from the book Building Beautiful Boxes with the Bandsaw. They really need to be renamed to sanding boxes, especially if made from a very hard wood such as Macacauba.
