    Bandsaw Box

    This was my first attempt at a bandsaw box. I needed something for my grand daughter Lizzie as I just built her sister the vanity table.
    I almost cut this into several pieces while bandsawing. Saved myself at the last minute

    I'ts too thick (deep) I think. Next time I'll measure the sanding height of my spindle sander before I design it I did come up with a good adaption to my spindle sander to make the sanding stroke longer though. Another thread on how I did it coming up.

    It's rosewood, walnut, maple and cherry. Finished with 3 coats of wipe on poly.

    This turned out OK but not really how I expected. Next one will be better.

    Defiantly fun to make

    Looks great Bob. I am sure Lizzie will be thrilled, and that's all that matters.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    That is cute. Those little hidden drawers are a great idea.

    When you give it to her, maybe put something inside the drawers.

    Like a nice little Jewlry store neklace for when shes older, and a savings bond for her Wedding day
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible
