Very nice looking box. You say you cut it on the scroll saw…it looks pretty thick…what is the size? Did you cut all of it on the Scroll saw? I’ve built many band saw boxes and sized all of them down to little kids size, but always used the band saw because they were all about 3 – 4” thick

It’s only 1.75” thick. Process is the same as the band saw box except you can’t cut the back off, had to use 1/4” material for it and glue it up. It’s about 4” tall and 2.5 wide. I just bought a band saw so I’ll be trying some bigger ones soon

Did you cut the front and back off the drawers on the SS? I made a couple dozen small boxes on the BS..they were about the size of a dollar bill standing up

Yes, it can be a little testy as the ss doesn’t appreciate the thicker material. I used a “9 blade. Stay away from the reverse tooth blades on the thick stuff, they just don’t get rid of the sawdust

I agree, those reverse blades can be a bit hard at times. I use Flying Dutchman blades and have for many years. I guess you could say I do like them.
