Steve's Bandsawn Box

FIRST BANDSAWN BOX
A fitting gift from Canarywood!

SHOP OWNER: Steve King
LOCATION: Plano, TX

    I have always liked the look of the bandsawn box and wanted to make one for my mother-in-law for her birthday. I bought the book, “Building Beautiful Boxes”, by Lois Ventura. I decided to use the pattern in the back of the book that she calls “The Tides”, for the first box that I would build.

    The next step was to find some nice wood. I went to Curly Woods to look around and saw some Zebrawood and thought that would look good until I saw the Canarywood. I cut and glued it in a bookmark fashion like the book instructed.

    I applied two coats of Seal Coat, sanding between applications, and finished with Waterlox. After the finish dried, I sanded with 0000 steel wool and applied Johnson's Paste Wax.
    For the inside of the drawers, I used an Emerald Green flocking kit from Woodcraft. Made by DonJer, it comes with the adhesive, suede flakes, and applicator.
