I’ve had a 5 year old dry apple tree at home, after a few cut-outs i tried to make a band saw box out of a 4” piece of wood. It took me long time to bring out the burning cuts, but now (after a few sanding and using clear paint) it looks great i think!

I’d have never thought of doing a band saw box that way in a million years. Thanks for the inspiration.

One advice, glue it together on the same day after cutting out and sand just after finishing cutting; when not you’ll have some troubles, because altought it’s dry old wood, it has some pressure in it, and then maybe you’ll break the ring!
Thanks for the nice postings

I noticed that the drawers are cut out in a shape of a tree, that’s pretty slick. I like that you used the bark on the wood there, too.

I used the 6mm blade with my makita bandsaw, i think this must be 1/4”.
The dimensions: 4” thick and about 8” to 9” wide.
I painted a piece of scrab bark, and i liked it, so i let it on.

Wow that’s really cool! I love how the piece in the middle is shaped like a tree. Very creative!
