You must be trying to cure a really bad case of shop withdrawal syndrome :). You better let your bandsaw cool down a bit.

Wow! I see some really nice boxes that you have made. Lee has some good advice! You do need a brake don’t you? Nice work!

Nice one Larry, if I may suggest and not meaning to step on toes but if you make your entry points with the grain you can hide the cut lines, so on this box both entry points would have been from the bottom and continue up to each drawer following the grain.

Thank you everyone for your kind comments. Randy, believe it or not, I have tried many times doing the glue up and hiding the in cuts only to find the glue did not hold tight and I still had a line….a bit hard to get the glue into that little cut. So instead, I carve out the cut to accent it a bit.

Larry, what I do when I run into situations like that, once it’s all clamped and dried, I take the glue bottle and squeeze out just enough to fill in the cut void then dust it with the same wood sawdust, works every time.
