This is the first Bandsaw Box I’ve ever attempted, after being motivated by Randy to start with some simple designs before trying his “Sled” design for the holidays.

Yeah I made some mistake cuts, but I learned a thing or two and think it came out ok. There were more than a few experiments on this box.

Being sick of the “ambering effect” polyurethane has on wood, I tried something different on the top slider… I covered it in Elmer’s glue to give it a seal coat before adding any poly.

All wood is pine, simply stained different colors (Ebony and natural Poly).

Thanks for looking

A couple of tricks, 1. Only when possible try and arrange your project so that you can make your entry following the grain, this allows you to hide your entry point cut lines. 2. On your drawers, CA glue small 3/16” square skids onto the bottom of your drawers to center them inside of the cavity, sanding is involved.
