Default Bandsaw box affliction.

I've been making quite a few of these lately to sell in craft shows, farmers markets and local shops. Got started about 3 months ago and have been having a lot of fun making them from the plans in the book by Lois Keener Ventura (Building Beautiful Bandsaw Boxes).

Using a Hitachi 12" bandsaw with a modified Ridgid 6" riser block -- seems to fit the bill nicely.

This is one of the larger boxes, Walnut with an Ash backer and Ash drawer pulls.


Thanks for looking.

Very nice looking Stan. About how much time do you have in one of these? Approximate, start to finish.

I've never been 'on the clock' while building on of this size -- but probably 3 days 'start to finish', which includes a lot of waiting for glue to dry, waiting for lacquer to dry, etc. If everything could be done without any 'wait' time, I'd say maybe 4-5 hours (most of that being sanding).


(Box Notes: Bloodwood and Coffeenut with Sycamore pulls. Will be finished with lacquer).

A box like the one above is actually pretty fast to make. I can get a home-made 'rolling-pin sander' inside the drawer cavities to smooth them out a bit which speeds thing up significantly.
