  • Got a bandsaw, made a box

    Got a new small (10") bandsaw over Christmas. So what else then to make a box (after I changed out the cheap blade for a good 1/4" one, tried some re-sawing, and found out quickly they need a dust collection system). Boy can they make sawdust.

    Anyway, this is my design. I call it a peanut box. Hope you can tell why.

    Made from walnut and oak. Size is about 7.5" by 3.5" by 4" deep. Finish is tung oil.

        That's very nice... I got my first bandsaw in December and I have to try one of those boxes soon. What blade is better for making boxes? I have 1/4" but also have a 1/8" blade.

              Sweeeeet project Ron, bet you can't stop at making one. I agree with the others, good selection of contrasting wood. Verrrry nice.

                Wow! I need to decide which bandsaw to buy and get one for my shop! Of course that means then I need the dust collection system...and I still need a jointer and planer! Why do I always pick up expensive hobbies

                      Wish I knew witch was better. I am still a beginner myself. I have thought of getting a 1/8" blade myself, but I read of possible tracking issues with those.

                        Thanks WD. You are right, am selecting the wood for the next one as we speak.

                            A awesome box Ron and a great choise of woods. As far as blades go it like with scroll sawing it depends on the thickness of wood your using.

                              Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
                              That is...

                              The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

                              Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

                              The one I do is under a pavilion on County Property, about 60 spaces. They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...

We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

                              Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

                              Now,...
