Trash to Treasure - Cracked Bandsaw Box (September 2013)

This is another trash to treasure project for me. I salvaged the poplar from some cabinet face frames earlier this summer. I chose someone else’s design as I have always liked it and just want to get some good bandsaw experience under my belt. It’s been a while since I ran a bandsaw. Here is a short and fun video for the not-so-short but very fun project. Click the link in the youtube description for a link to the template if you want to make one of your own.

Donald – I understand. I owned a 9” Skill brand saw. What a piece of junk. Mine are about 11” tall, 4.75 wide, and 3.25 front to back.

Man…. I knew you were going to go and make a bandsaw video. I’ve already been itching to buy one. This is just going to make it harder.

Nice boxes. They look great!

Very cool boxes, I sure like seeing the designs that are possible and yours are always great. I do like the split look on the tops and how you cut it.

Not bad for your first trial on bandsaw box making, I’ve not had the chance to make this particular set yet and unfortunately most likely never will as I’m not much for making others productions, I like the challenge of creating my own and so my path in bandsaw box making has led me into my own designs and have also considered writing a book on them.

JSB I looked through your projects and you do very nice work on your creations only thing I could suggest on these boxes would be to round the edges a tad bit more and also placing runners under the drawers to center them into the cavities for a nicer cleaner look, nice set and congrats.

Another thing that will help you on your bandsaw boxes JSB is changing your blade to a 3/16 14 tpi and adding the carter stabilizer in place of your guides.
