That band saw box looks nice. Not bad for a first timer. You’ve certainly outdid yourself.

Looks pretty good for a first timer. Love the beautiful grains and the finish set them off. Well done and more boxes to come.

Thanks to all, appreciate all the help and kind words… makes one wish to continue and become better.

If anyone is curious about the drying cones under the box and drawer ..we had stainless steel solar lights, which after 3 seasons and 2 sets of batteries quit working well. Took them apart, wired them with LED’s and a transformer, lights work great, and the white plastic cones were light diffusers from the lights. Win win.
