Hello friends of LJ.
At last I finished my bandsaw box.
First of all I thank for the inspiration to Blakie.
A friend asked me to make a similar, when he saw the box which I gave to my girlfriend while back. She was until recently owned a motorcycle and always mentions the strange, so I wanted it to be something special.
Take a picture of the web and proceeded to cut several tables with the same model. They are: cedar, timbo and pine. Then glue them and link them to the press. Use sandpaper so that everything is fairly aligned. And finally two coats of varnish.
Here ask got water varnish and is the first time I use it. I loved it. Try the termination is different, but the ease of drying and easy to clean items and hands is awesome. What opinion do you have of this?
Ah! All the cut was with hand tool…and much patience.
Thank for look and greetings to all!

Hey l like it, very nice!

Thanks for the tip of the hat. :)

Gerardo, looks like you got the handlebars a bit thin so be careful there, I had to make a modification as one of my very first had the bars break so I thickened them up a bit.

Yes Blackie. I saw the same problem you mention. We’ll see if being careful supports. But I will have to consider when making some other. Copy you the idea without asking … thanks.

I am very impressed. First, great job. Second, that it was done with hand tools. That is awesome.

Thanks people! The whole project took me two weeks but in hours worked loose at night or nap after work. I estimate that in grouping will work two full days. Likewise the glue drying time is fixed as the drying of termination, so can not be done in one day.
Today I´finally decide buy a power scroll saw. A B&D 1065. It’s a hobby equipment but I hope to serve me what I do. And just to make things a little faster.
Greetings for all.
