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 2x4. Here is the result.
I forgot to take any pictures while I was actually cutting it so here it is all cut up.
My sister recently bought a used table on Craigslist but it only came with 3 chairs so she asked me to make her one. Her only request was that it be 17" tall and flat black to match the other chairs. I did some looking around on the web and found the traditional 5 board bench design. I also found Charles Neil's video on YouTube and figured that I could build a variation on that design. It also gave me an excuse to try out the new bandsaw. You can download a free sketchup file of this project in the downloads section of this site and you can also watch a video of me building it here: http://youtu.be/1_hz2n7v9ss
I started by cutting the legs to rough length using my little cordless saw. I don't feel safe cutting
pieces that long on my contractor table saw.
I then cut them to length and width on the tablesaw.
Here are all the pieces cut to size. There is 1 extra 1x6 in this picture because I was originally
going to put a support shelf under the seat but the legs are slightly bowed and it didn't match
up when I cut the shelf straight so I decided not to use it.
I started a new project this weekend. My sister asked me to make her a bench so I did some searching and decided to make a modified version of a 5 board bench. Here are a couple pictures of it held together with clamps. Look for a full build post coming soon!
