Long ago that I did not make a box on my bandsaw, I have several on paper but when I finished this drawing, I decided it was to do immediately! Work done in Alder and Pine wood, with dimensions of 30X25X11 cm.
Bandsaw box, made with Pine and Alder wood. It measures 30×25x11 cm. Designed and made exclusively by me.
The handles were also carved by me.

I see a lot of bandsaw boxes on LJs but I have to admit this is one of the more unique and beautiful ones.

Very nicely done! I love the wandering nature of the box edges that look like branches and the handles of ivy.

Looks like you grew it instead of making it.

You KNOW that I will have to “borrow” your style, don’t you?
However you will always get credit!

I’d be happy to serve as an inspiration, just be sure to use your own imagination and creativity and do show us what you come up with! ;)

When I saw your band saw box I had to run and get my wife to show her this beautifully designed work! Elegance at its best! And what everyone else said above!

Your organic flow takes the bandsaw box to a place where the bandsaw box has never gone before. Congratulations on a distinguished design and build.
