My first Bandsaw box!
This one taught me a whole bunch about my bandsaw.. I learned how to overtighten the 1/4” blade and easily snap it.
I’m going to purchase a new blade support to allow easier cutting for projects like this one.
Maple and Walnut. These projects are a great way to use up scrap hardwood and end up with something beautiful and useful as a gift.
For the pull, i cut a slice off of the edge to make it a square block so now i have a enough material to make several pulls for future boxes made with this combination.
I sanded like crazy to get the grains to stand out well and then tried boiled linseed oil for the first time. I really like the way this project finished. It was frustrating figuring out what i wanted but in the end I think it turned out really well.
Thanks to Steve Ramsey at Woodworking for Mere Mortals for the video instructions. I’ll post a finished box using his template next week once i finish it.
