This is one of 2 bandsaw boxes I recently completed. The plans came from here on lumberjocks. For this one I used walnut and maple laminated together. The second box is made from red oak that I salvaged from a pallet and also found the design here on LJ’s. All in all I was happy with the outcome except the drawers weren’t as snug as I had hoped. My cuts weren’t very smooth and I broke my cheap 1/8” blade on this but I have a new timberwolf blade on the way. Also the glue squeeze out on the inside of the drawers was a pain. The sanding was likely to drive me insane. Both boxes are lined with felt. I finished it with a 1/3 mix of Poly, BLO, and Mineral Spirits which I also found here. This is my first attempt at bandsaw boxes so any tips or criticism would be appreciated.
