A friend asked me to make this 4 drawer box as a xmas present for her mother. 5”w x 10” h x 4” d. drawers lined with green felt. finished with 2 coats of Watco oil, and buffed with carnauba wax on exterior. used bees wax in the hard to reach interior drawer cavities.
really like the way the vertical grain pattern shows up on the front.

Great looking box. I especially like the way the grain alignment adds to the look. Looks like I have something to put on my list of projects for next Christmas!

That’s a great band saw box! Love the design, the flowing curves and little details.
