It’s been a long time coming, but here’s my first effort for posting. Walnut & maple. About 8” x 5” x 4 1/2”.
Finished with 4 coats of Arm-R-Seal. Many oops & a few aw-s**ts. Learned a lot & looking forward to more boxes & other projects.
Thanks to Steve (The Carmichael workshop) for the design & Steve Ramsey @ WWMM for the video that got me interested in doing one.
Adding a blog with more info on the journey & specific thanks to some other LJ’s.

Nice job. That’s quite a box. I’m with Oakwood – band saw boxes can be very addicting!

I couldn’t agree more with the comments above! Your band saw box is way more awesome! Keep up the good work.

Great job on your first bs box. I wasn’t brave enough to use walnut on my first one. Just wait….it’s addicting and you won’t be able to stop! You’ll find some very nice patterns in Lois Keener Ventura’s book, Building Beautiful Boxes with your band saw.

Thanks all for your comments. And to Steve, I cannot thank you enough for the design/drawing since I don’t have the drawing capability. dee2 I’m lucky to have a good source for reasonable wood or I wouldn’t have taken a chance with walnut.
Purplev the suggestion on finish was after Pm’s with Charles Neil.

Beautiful. Great job.

My first project was simply cross cutting a 2×4. I was happy the cut was straight!!! Still get excited when that occurs.
