I know, my boxes aren’t original, but I like them. They are fun to build. The cracked bandsaw box is made out of mdf. I made it out of mdf cause I knew that there would be many mistakes, and there were. This is my first crack at it, hahaha, and i figured the mistakes were going to be easy to hide, and they were. I raffled off the cracked one at work, trying to raise money for a 200km bike ride that I am participating in that will start in Toronto and end up in Niagara Falls. The money will help contribute to children’s cancer research. If there is anyone out there who is willing to help or contribute to this fund raiser just plug in my name (Nicholas Bandini) in the “find participant” section at It would be greatly appreciated.

The “S” shaped box is maple with mahogany handles and the third box is also maple and mahogany laminated.

Good cause. Nice looking boxes. The only ones that need to think they are originals is the buyer. Even if it is influenced by someone else it is an original by you.

They are really unusual and you did a nice job on them. What’s more it was for a good cause so all is well.
