"Milan" Bandsaw Box

2-drawer bandsaw box made from zebra wood, walnut and plywood. The main body of the box is baltic birch plywood sandwiched between zebra wood. Drawers and feet are made from walnut and the drawer compartments are lined with black flocking. Finished with a blend of boiled linseed oil, mineral spirits and polyurethane.

This box is named after Milan, Italy as all my boxes are named after locations. I feel this gives each box an identity as makes them identifiable.

That’s an awesome looking BS Box. I like the idea of using different wood for the drawer fronts.
