These are my first bandsaw boxes, thought I’d share them with you.
Apple wood box with no back, so drawers can be pulled from either side. There are walnut handles on both sides of the drawers. Third picture shows how I hid my joint using the natural grain to hide it. Finished with 50% satin poly and 50% mineral spirits, then polished with bee’s wax.
Spalted maple box with backing. Again with walnut handles on the drawers, and finished the same as the apple wood box.
Both boxes were sanded using a oscillating spindle sand, orbital sander, then sanded by hand 80 to 220 before finish was applied. I used a hand held router with a round over bit, to soften the front edge. And used a combination of quick bar clamps and spring clamps, for my glue up.
