I have been talking about attempting a band saw box for sometime now but I always seemed to put it off. My son was visiting and was tired of me talking and challenged me to do something. Well I guess that is what it took. Here is my first attempt at a band saw box. Pretty basic but I found it a lot of fun. (except for the sanding lol.) It is made with some walnut, cherry and maple scraps and finished with tung oil and wipe on poly.

I really like the choice of woods you used on your first BS box. I remember my first and how much I fought the to large of blade I was using at that time.

Thanks Larry. I really like the boxes you have on your site. I picked up some Koa at a garage sale. I may use some to do a couple boxes. Yours look great.
