Finished some more boxes to take to the gallery for their “review” – should know by Friday if they’re interested. The 3 drawer box was a redo of the 1st box I made with several oops & couple of aw S**T’s. I liked the design (from LJ Steve) so wanted to see how I’d improved – definitely better.

Still working with walnut & maple. It’s nice to have wood with grain or figure so I can hide my cut lines.
Getting a little tired of rounding corners with Dremel & lots of hand sanding so guess I’ll be looking into router table options.
Finished with coats of Arm-R-Seal.
Thanks for looking.

Those look beautiful man! Love the woods you used. I’m always tempted to use my router table to round over the box edges, but I always chicken out because I don’t want to ruin them after all the work to get to that stage.

Again – appreciate all the comments. These don’t come close to some of the work you guys have done.
So Andy, you can call them anything you want!

A somewhat related question i have regarding bandaw boxes…I am getting ready to purchase a bandsaw in the next week. The 2 Rikon choices i have it narrowed down to are slightly different in that one will take a 1/8” blade and the other has a minimum of a 1/4”. I presume a 1/8” allows for more precise cutting? Will i be missing much in terms of detail bandsaw box capabilities if my smallest blade is a 1/4”

ol104 – I’m far from the most experienced person on band saws, but my short answer would be yes, you’d lose some detail cutting without 1/8” blade.
However using the Carter Stabilizer improves cutting tight curves with up to 1/4” blades.
I have the Rikon 10-325 & it works for my work so far. I do not do a lot of re-sawing.

The 10-325 is one of my options. So you use the 10-325 with an 1/8” blade configuration? My other choice is the 16” 10-366. Highland tools is trying to clear out their 10-366 and it is essentially the same price as the 10-325. Trade off in what i would gain with depth on the 16” verus what detail i would lose by the 1/8” blade option

Again – I think you’ll get better input from more experienced users. But I’d buy the one I thought would meet the vast majority of my needs. For me I never see a need to have the 16” capability. I use various blades, 1/8” to 5/8” widths on my 10-325.
You may wish to post this as a separate ?.
