This is my first try at a bandsaw box. Woods are purple heart and yellow heart. 2 coats of Danish oil and 3 coats of poly. Inside of the drawer is wine-colored flocking.

That looks really good! I’ve never tried a bandsaw box, but this design makes me want to give one a try.

That’s your first? I can’t wait to see when you get “good” at it! Really nice work there. I would never have guessed it was your first. :)

Beautiful job and hard to believe it’s your first. I never saw one stuck to the wall like that. Did you use velcro or magnets? LOL

Thanks everybody for all the generous comments. As a hobbyist, I appreciate the opinions of you woodworking experts. Sorry about the download. I’m not sure why it’s not right side up; the original pic was. I learned quite a bit with this first effort. I’ve now invested in a 3/16” blade and a Carter stabilizer, which should make tighter radii easier. Also, this one was just a shade too wide so the inside couldn’t be sanded on my Rigid drum sander because the top of the drum didn’t extend beyond the cavity. Of course, that dilemma would’ve been avoided had I sanded the interior before putting the back on. (I was concerned it was too delicate for a drum sander without the back).
