Default Band saw/Scroll saw Boxes

These are what have kept me busy for a few days. First time I've made any and they were fun to make.

In the first picture, the darker box is from the pattern on "Woodworking for Mere Mortals" video on Youtube. That was my first box. The second box, with the double pockets, is my design.

Second picture shows the 3-drawer boxes I cut from the pattern in SWWC, Summer 2009, designed by Thomas Haapapuro and single drawer box of my design that has a cool knot I wanted to show off.

Wood used was good old cedar with nice knots for some pieces.

I learned a few things along the way: always wear my dust mask because cedar is irritating and stinky, especially the knots; lots and lots of sanding is needed after cutting with the band saw.

So, after the first boxes cut solely on the bandsaw, I made some changes to my methods. I cut the back section off of the box using the bandsaw, and made the tighter cuts on the scroll saw. I just had to be sure the height of the remaining piece would fit under my saw and let me cut. Much smoother result using the scroll saw.

It's always fun and challenging to attempt something new. I enjoyed every minute, even all the dang sanding. LOL

Welcome to the world of Bandsaw boxes Nancy. I can't do enough of them. I have about 6 going right now. One was a shell design box that ended up having some rotten wood glued up in the middle that I thought I could cut around...didn't work, got a big hole in the top of one of the drawer compartments. I was showing some boxes to a friend and that is the one she wanted. I finished to box (with the hole) and she loved it. So don't discard one you don't like...another person may love it.

I've made several band saw boxes and I'm staining one like you did, I put 3 pieces of 3/4" together and cur some off the back and then cut the remainder with the scrollsaw. I did find a way to speed up the process, I bought a riobi spiral drumb sander and it makes short work of the sanding .
You did a great job on all of them. Thanks for sharing .

Very nicely done Nancy. I really like that box. I agree sanding is a pita ( Pain In The A@@ ) and you do need some form of dust mask but it is great when you are done with it. Thanks for sharing it with us.

You did a good job on those. Can't believe they are your first ones.

Thanks, everyone for the nice comments. I had fun with these and plan to make several more of them.

Larry, I agree about not discarding something I don't like. You never know what will appeal to someone else.

Okie, I did not stain any of the boxes. The reddish color of the one box is due to the piece of Western Red cedar I used for it. The cool thing about wrc is the colors vary from light to dark.

As for the sanding...I had to change out my mask filters after the last piece was done since my filters were brown instead of white! LOL

Thanks again
