Walnut Bandsaw Box

 

Fish Shaped Walnut Bandsaw Box

Wood: Walnut

Dimensions
Length: 8 1/2"
Height: 4"
Depth: 4"
 

Walnut is a very attractive wood for making bandsaw boxes. The combination of heartwood and sapwood produce an interesting visual effect on these curved boxes. Since this project requires a lot of sanding I suggest a dust collector be used and a respirator worn. Walnut dust is not something I like breathing.

This box is finished with an oil and varnish blend.

To learn how to make boxes like this, I suggest you purchase the book
Building Beautiful Boxes With Your Band Saw by Lois Keener Ventura. It has a number of different designs from very simple to very complex. This fish-shaped design is from her book.
