Box made with some scraps lying around from my workbench build last year. It’s all douglas fir from home depot.

If I did it again, i’d not leave the gap on the top, but live and learn. I’d either glue them back up to hide them, or put the gaps on the sides.

Thanks for looking.

I like it. You incorporated the gaps into the “look” of the piece. To me that is better than doing a poor job of hiding it.

It’s a nice box and a good solid design.

I’m with everyone else. You did a superb job on this band saw box.
