Got a new bandsaw for Christmas so I figured I could test it out with my fort bandsaw box. It’s aromatic cedar finished with clear shellac and rubbed out with wax. I made the drawer pull out of a scrap of maple I had laying around.

Great band saw box to initiate the new band saw. I dropped enough hints for a bigger band saw but no one got the message. Like the wood and finish you achieved.

Thanks Pete, it was just a tin of minwax paste wax I had laying around, I thinned it with a little mineral spirits

I love the way the wood jumps out at you. i may try to add stick on or spray on felt for the inside of the drawers…really shows them off
