This was my first bandsaw box. It’s made from ambrosia maple with a walnut handle. My daughter thought the wood was “cool” looking until I told her the colored streaks were a fungus and holes were made by bugs.

Thanks – The fear of the bug fungus is gone and it gets used now.

Dang I like band saw boxes. There are endless possibilities. I like the shape and flow of this box and proportions look/feel just right. Great job!

Looks great with the fungus and bug holes, great salvage of the wood. Beautiful design and wood combo.

What a very beautiful band saw box.
