This is a bandsaw box that i made for my wife back in September of last year. I used scrap mahogany and pine that I had laying around. This project was so much fun, if you haven’t tried it, put it on you list of things to make!

Thank you all so much for the kind words! The only finish that I used on this project was clear Danish Oil. Sometimes the piece speaks for itself, the Danish Oil just really brings out the grain and natural color of the wood.
