It’s been a while since I’ve posted. I’ve been working on my shop, acquiring tools, and admiring the fine work folks post here on Lumberjocks.

I did this project a while back as a gift for my mother-in-law. It’s Steve’s pattern from Woodworking for Mere Mortals

I found a benchtop Delta bandsaw at a yard sale for $10, replaced the tires and powercord, bought a few blades and tuned it up.

This is a fun, easy project for a beginner. They’re addictive too. <g> I’m going to have to make some more.

Very nice box, I see oak, what else is in there?
A bandsaw is my next big tool, I cant wait to be able to stop using my table saw for resawing. Very jealous of your 10 dollar bandsaw.

I’m sorry these pictures are not great quality. From front to back, the wood is red oak, pine, red oak, poplar, red oak. These are what my local Lowes carries. I have found some local lumber places for other wood species, but until I feel a little more confident, I’ll practice on some of the cheaper wood first.
