Band saw box

I have been wanting to make a band saw box for a long time. The big hold up was my 35 year old Sears band saw. It couldn't saw something very thick with much accuracy and don't have a whole of power either.
So scaled things down by 50% and made one from a picture in a magazine. I used Maple and Bubinga. You can see some of my mistakes, but you can't see the big one. When I glued the round piece to it's base, I didn't think about the inside storage areas. I glued it down to look balanced and that showed me that I had cut the storage area at the wrong angles. This meant that there isn't much area left to use.

Oh well, I always learn more that way anyhow. I made another one after that and it came out better. You can see it on my web site.

Ron, that looks awesome! What a neat little box. I love the one on your site too. Is it your own design? I checked out the pictures of your turned vases, also very nice work. Keep it up and keep the pictures coming.

Wow! That is a really goodlookimg band saw box! IMHO, people who make things are their own worst critics. They point out "errors" that almost always are unnoticed by others.

John, Thanks for the kind words.I did design the fish. When I looked at the piece of cedar, it kind of looked like a fish. I took it from there. If you haven't looked at the burled wood post on my site (first page) take a look see. When I saw what I did in those pieces, I just had to make them.
