This is my 3rd box that I just finished or my Daughters Birthday. It is made with Walnut, Cherry, and Purpleheart in the center. the drawers are lined with Flocking. I used a 50/50 Blend of Mineral Spirits and Polyurethane for the finish. Total coats were around 6 or 7.

That is a very unique type of band saw box! Absolutely beautiful. You do great work! Really impressive.

Thank You Surfside, I think my daughter wiill like it. I havent been able to give it to her yet because when all the work was done and I was inserting the clock the back fell of and all the gears fell out. I managed to put them back in and it worked so I decided to apply some super glue to the back and when I did the glue ran down inside the clock and stopped it, so today the new replacement clock arrived and just a little cleanup and I can give it to her.

Very cool design! I’ll bet this will get copied a lot. Blackie has a good tip for centering your drawers in their spaces: just glue runners under them.

Hi gfadvm, Thank You, Thats a good idea ill have to try that, im working on a larger one right now for my wife and that tip will come in handy, as long as I can keep my bandsaw on the lines. I need a new blade the last one I made had a really bad cut but alot of sanding and file work made it look a little better.

Nice design, as Andy mentioned you can center the drawers by cutting small 3/16 to 1/8 square strips from the blocks you cut out of the drawers and CAing them on the bottom ends of the drawer, they act as levelers to center the drawer inside of the cavity just have to be very careful how much you sand on each side as you can easily sand to much.
