Band Saw Boxes


Design and build bandsaw boxes.  This project allows the student to apply many aspects of detailed woodworking into a unique and beautiful piece. Students will be required to review safety procedures on the bandsaw, face planer, thickness planer, table saw, drill press, spindle sander,  and orbital sander among others.  


Research and/or design a bandsaw box. Draw out ideas and finalize on paper, transfer design to prepared wood blank once design and dimensions are determined.  Choose wood species, mill and prepare for glue up of required blank. Each student will approach the creation of their project differently depending on complexity and scope of design including cutting, sanding and finishing.
