A fellow co-worker just finished making a patio at his house and I noticed he was throwing away a pile of beautiful cedar. A huge pile of planks 1” thick and 6” wide and a whole bunch of 4” by 4” posts. All clear cedar. Of course I grabbed the huge pile of what he said was just junk and got to work.

Here is one of the many band saw boxes I had made with the “garbage” wood.

This is the first one I had ever made so there are a few flaws but I think it turned out pretty nice.

I just love the bandsaw boxes, they are so individual and unique in their construction. Keep up the good work. Looking fine.
