I built this bandsaw jewelry box for my daughter’s 10th birthday. She loved it! It’s made from an old 1×12 pine board I found in her grandfather’s workshop. The board was cupped so I had to plane it down flat to about 1/2” thick, then I cut it into 12” pieces and laminated them together. The overall dimensions of the jewelry box are about 10” tall, 8” wide, and 4” deep.
I wasn’t too happy about how the wood grain looked on top of the box, so I decided to turn that into a “special feature” by sticking a piece of felt on top to cover it. It’s a good place for her to put jewelry while putting it on or deciding what to wear. The felt has a peel and stick backing and was very easy to cut and attach.
The template is my own design I created using elements from other bandsaw boxes I’ve seen. I have a 12” bandsaw with a 1/4” blade, so I made sure that the overall size and the radius of all curves could be cut with my current bandsaw and blade setup. Click here for the PDF template.
