My first bandsaw box

I’ve had the  bandsaw for a while now so I figured that it was finally time to make a bandsaw box.  All the bandsaw boxes out there are all curved and graceful looking so I wanted to see if I could make one all boxy with a square drawer.  I couldn’t be bothered to glue anything together so I grabbed a well used and abused piece of scrap 2×4.  Here is the result.

I forgot to take any pictures while I was actually cutting it so here it is all cut up.

The first thing I did was to cut the back off.

I then cut the top and the bottom off.

Next were the sides which left me a chunk of wood from the middle.

I took that center chunk and cut the front and back off and hollowed out the center. 

I then glued the top and bottom back onto the sides

The next step was to glue the drawer back together.

And then clamp it up

Once the glue was dry it was time to glue the back, back on.

I put that block in the front so the clamp would have something to push against.

The drawer should have been the same size as those side pieces but was a smidge larger so I sanded it down to size with the disk sander

Here is what the final piece looks like.

Now that I know how to do it I am going to make a bigger and nicer one.
