Pictured: Motorcycle Bandsaw Box, This design has been a big hit and a great seller, it was one of my first projects to branch out on in making my own designs, over time I’ve grown and progressed into making a better professional product and I have to owe thanks to members here on LJ’s, great teachers among us. This box is made out of spalted hackberry and walnut for the center stripe, it offers a hidden drawer inside of the center drawer, it measures 11” x 5” x 4” and is finished in a single coat of tung oil and several coats of my own mix wipe on poly with a final coat of paste wax.

thanks for looking and comments are always enjoyed.

Very nice looking box Randy. When you use the Tung oil do you find it takes a long period of time to dry…I sure have a hard time with it. Perhaps it’s the heat around here.

that must be turning at least a 454…very nice woods used here,,i like this one a lot..sure wish i had a bandsaw, if there is any well off person out there who could spare to help a poor wood worker who would love to have a bandsaw, i would be forever grateful… much can be done with one, and i must pass things like this on by, love this randy..keep on keepin on…

A huge thanks to everyone for your nice comments.

Larry I let my projects dry for 24 hours plus or minus or in that ball park, thing is I don’t let the tung oil sit on the wood very long and don’t put it on thick I just use the tung oil for the grain pop and coloration it gives, I do a quick wipe once I apply.

Grizz thanks and who knows your wish just may come true :)
