  • Bandsaw boxes and Scrolling... *hmmm*

    This is giving me a whole new outlook on the pull construction for some of my bandsaw boxes. Below is an example of a pull that I think could use some better design via the scroll saw. (I'm getting a whole lot of new ideas).



    Any suggestions or sample ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    When I do my bandsaw boxes, I always use the scrollsaw to cut the pulls. They come out nicer, and I'm not putting my hand near the bandsaw blade. I like safety.

    One thing I hadn't thought of was that by doing these on my scrollsaw, I could do fretwork handles. I'll bet I can come up with some nice handles using some nice, tight inside cuts.

      Forgot to mention that I *really* like that box. Very nice work. I may have to "appropriate" that idea :-)

        Very nice box, Stan. I like that little dolphin pull you used.

            Think the dimensions on that one were 10" wide, 7" tall and 5-3/4" deep.

              Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

              We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

              What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
