This is my first bandsaw box. It is spalted maple, cherry, and walnut finished with satin poly rub. The bottom is merlot velvet. The handle is cedar. Boy – are these guys fun. I have made more and have about a dozen in various states of completion. I’ll share more pictures.

What I like most about building bandsaw boxes is the ability to use whatever plan you want. I ordered some plans but am finding “free-hand” design is more fun. Kind of puts your signature on the box.

-- Take care.....Ed

You chose some very choice wood for your first and it turned out nice. They are addictive, aren’t they?

Beautiful grain pattern. Your wood choice compliments it too.
