Bandsaw Box

As soon as I unpacked my bandsaw last summer, I was eager to try some projects that really made use of it’s unique capabilities. While I’ve done quite a bit of resawing, I still wanted to try to make a bandsaw box. Bandsaw boxes are generally curvy and they have drawers that perfectly fit the shape of the curve. If you’re a woodworker, it makes you stop and think “Wait… how did they do that?”

I received David Picciuto’s bandsaw book for Christmas and dug in. There are a series of builds and I started off at the beginning. I learned a lot while making the box and I know my next one will be better, but I still thought this would make a good gift for Mom. The wood is a combination of walnut and plywood. The interior is covered with black flocking. Happy Birthday, Mom!
