Freeform Box I am fascinated with the bandsawn boxes that are designed and constructed in shapes that are more 'free flowing' and less square.Band sawn boxes can be as easy, or as difficult, as you care to make them.
Try the methods mentioned here to come up with some interesting shapes of your own.To make this bandsawn box: • Prepare a suitable blank• Cut a ¼" str*p off the back• Cut out the drawers• Cut off ½" from the front of drawers• Cut ¼" from the back of drawers• Cut out the drawer compartments• Glue fronts & back, backs to drawers• Glue back of box, back onto box body• Cut out the body• Sand and finish Prepare the BlankFor this project I used a laminated blank, rather than a solid block of wood.
If you choose to do the same, begin by laminating as many boards together as you will need for the size of box that you want.When deciding on the size, keep in mind the working clearances of your band saw.
Lay out the boards prior to glue-up, and look at the grain orientation.Try to picture which board would look best next to others, keeping the best board for the front....
