Bandsaw box

I’ve been wanting to try my hand at making a bandsaw box for awhile. I settled on attempting one of The Drunken Woodworker’s boxes.

It was a fun project, and I think it turned out ok. I didn’t like the multiple blade changes, so any future boxes will wait on a second bandsaw. That probably won’t happen.

Anyhow, here’s the finished project. Zebra wood & walnut with a rattle can poly finish.

Thanks for the positive comments.

David, I doubt that I’ll do more anytime soon unless I acquire a second bandsaw. Too many blade changes to suit me.

I would think that changing blades wouldn't be a problem when you turn out boxes that look so good. The other boxes you have on your dresser look nice also.

PS- It's been a long time since I made a bandsaw box. That has got to change.

Thanks, Hawkeye. I appreciate the comments. One thing about changing blades a half dozen times on this box - it does improve my ability to reset everything more quickly. Still, I’d rather have a second bandsaw.
