Never in a million Years ever wanted to build one of these. Never even looked at them (kinda like all the pens LJ’ers make). Certain areas of woodworking just fit defferent people. Carving, intarsia, BANDSAW boxes, turnings, etc..

What better way to test how well the saw is running then to give one of these a GO.

Very cool to build. Even if BS Boxes arent “your thing” i urge you to build one! This was FUN and took less then 2 hrs!..

scrap Cherry and a extra pull found in shop.

I’ve only made a couple, but it was good for practicing technique on bandsaw.

Good job.
