First bandsawn boxes I’ve done, made for my 14 year old (cross) and 11 year old (owl) daughters for Christmas. The cross is 8/4 glued up mahogany and the owl is layered 4/4 purple heart and maple. Drawer pulls on the cross are purple heart and the eyes and beak on the owl are ebony. Not sure of the wing material, was in the cut-off bin, so I found some cool grain, resawed and bookmatched. The wings overhang the drawer slightly to keep the front of the box flush. Finish didn’t turn out as well as I would have liked.

Your first? They look awesome! I like the cross but the owl looks really good,the eyes also surprised me, really like the wings. Great job on them and I am sure your daughters will be cherishing them for years to come.

Both of those turned out great but the pop-eyed owl blew me away! I may have to steal that design.

Your owl and cross-shaped bandsaw boxes are definitely the best.
