I wanted to try another band-saw-box for some time now. Last week it was time so I took some 40mm walnut and some 2mm cherry and started the glue-up!!

These projects are fun but I dont like the amount of sanding involved…..So I cheated a bit with the insides…..

Take care

When it comes to bandsaw boxes the more creative the better. Great job & design!
You know that you scimped on the sanding but probably no one else will. I feel the same way when I finish something! I have to have every square inch smooth as silk or I feel like I failed.

Very nice box. Did you use push through holes in the back of the box to open the drawers? How large is the box?

I almost didn’t click on this post when I read “bandsaw box” as I usually think “cheap hotel gift shop”. But this is cool… nice design. Would you consider posting a 3rd picture with the drawers pulled completely out?

Your design is quite original. I like it. A different take on a bandsaw box.

Thanks for the great comments.

The box is about 500mm high and about 300mm wide. And about 120mm thick.

The drawers can be opened when you pull on the front of the drawer, I didn’t want any handles on it

Nice work, an inspiration beyond “the cheap hotel gift shop”, a demonstration that there is almost no limit to what can be done when making bandsawn boxes – well done!
