This is a great design that I have always wanted to make. After purchasing my bandsaw last month I decided there was no time like the present to get it done! I salvaged some poplar out of old kitchen cabinet face frames earlier this summer. Here's a video showing a quick build process. Have a great one folks!

That's too cool! :thumbsup: I haven't done a bandsaw box in quite a while. Seeing these makes want to do one soon.

Thanks for sharing. I need to get a new blade for my Craftsman 10" BS so that I can make these. My plan is to make a few for gifts, but I just haven't made that first one yet.

Very nice.
That's a tough one to make. I did one before and my blade broke.
Never finished it.

Jay, what blade did you cut these boxes with? I have a fairly new 1/8" 14 TPI blade that just won't cut the hardwood at all. Thanks.

The problem you are most likely having is the high TPI count. I have been told you need to have no more than 20-24 teeth max in the wood at once. I went with a Highland Woodworking 3/16" 4tpi Skip Tooth blade. Highly recommended.

While that makes sense to me, I've been told to get a good glue ready finish to use a 12-14 TPI blade. I will look for a 3-4 TPI blade, but I'd prefer a 1/8 vs a 3/16. Did the 3/16 work for you on tight turns?

I made this project with the blade I suggested. Worked fine for me.

Is that a Woodslicer or Lennox blade?
