Introduction: Multi Drawer Bandsaw Box

About: I love working with wood. I make bandsaw boxes and just lately ive got a lathe and now enjoy woodturning.

What i used

1 douglas fir board 1 inch thick and 6 inches wide

1 douglas fir board 1/2 inch thick 6 inch wide

Thickness planer

Sanding grits - 120, 180, 240, 360, 400, 600

sanding sealer

suede tex and glue

wood glue

Spray Lacquer

Step 1:

For this project i used 2 Douglas fir boards one 1 inch thick and 1 1/2 inch thick both 6 inches wide.

I cut the 1 inch board into 5 x 12 inch sections these will be the top bottom and 3 drawer sections. I also 2 x 12 of the 1/2 inch boards these will go between the draw sections.

I put all the boards though the thickness planer before putting them in the order i wanted them to be placed in box.

Step 2:

Next i take 3 1 inch drawer boards and draw out the plan for the drawers using a compass for the curved drawers.

The designing of the drawers takes a while if you want to use the space well, but you are free to design any style of draw you wish. I had some square and some oval the oval ones can be pushed or pulled out of the box.

Step 3:

I then cut all the drawers out leaving the frame for these.

I then glued frame for the drawers in place. After the glue had dried i sanded and used sand sealer before gluing the box together leaving the drawers out .

Step 4:

I used wood glue and clamps to glue main box together.

The box is now complete time to get the drawers cut.

Step 5:

Cut the draw front off first.

Then cut base and then the main draw leaving about 1/4 inch outer edge on the drawer. This is shown in more detail in the attached photos and the linked video.

Step 6:

Now to finish box and drawers using sand sealer 2 coats and sanding with 400 grit after each coat. I then used a spray lacquer to finish.

To finish the inside of the drawer i used saude tex with a matching glue.

Step 7:

Thats the box all finished.

I hope you enjoyed, if you wish to see the process in more detail please watch the video.

Thank you

Fantastic! This is now one of my most favorite instructables. I have been looking for something unique for my most cherished granddaughters.
It is my hope that they may be able to pass it down for 1 or 2 generations. That is how much I think of this instructable.
I want to make it with materials that will last for a great many years. Does anyone have any suggestions on the type of materials to make this possible? The price is never to high for my two precious girls. Thank you for this instructable from a very greatful grandfather.
