I chose V2 for the title because the design represents a two cylinder motor bike engine in about half scale .
Building this box has been a bit of a challenge for me since I have never attempted a project like this and I wanted to incorporate the spirit of the contest motto ,like “twist, secret and jewelry” .
The box is build mainly using the band saw and has a drawer ,two secret compartments that twist and a couple jewelry type decorations .




The cylinders are held in place by a bayonet type lock(see bolts at back and slot in cylinder ) and can be removed with a simple twist but first the air filter has to be removed forward as it locks both cylinders and keeps them from being turned . The inside of the cylinders are about 9”high by 2” in diameter ,room for lots of stuff to be hidden .
This band saw box is a present to my son in law .
The bike he owns has a beautiful looking engine which is the inspiration for this box design .

Very very cool. Should get DT3 soon. Like the detail. I think it came out very good.

What are the “fins” made of?

Ultra cool! Definitely not your “run of the mill” BB. Clever design and outstanding incorporation of contest perimeters.

When you say aluminum edge, do you mean you used contact cement to stick on aluminum foil?

Very nice! I hesitate to even call this a BB. Well done and extremely interesting! Not to take away from what you have accomplished but I was wondering what a cutaway would look like to expose a piston. Just a thought.
Great work Kiefer!

Kiefer,

I’m SURE your son in law is going to be really excited to get this. It’s way out of what I’ve come to think about as a band saw box. Thanks for answering the cooling fins question.

I know you are a band saw master but I was curious about how long this project took?
