This is the 1st bandsaw box I ever made. I learned the technique for making bandsaw boxes using this design and instructions provided in a woodworking magazine. It is made from Walnut. The drawers are flocked. The finish is several coats of a tung oil/spar varnish mixture with two coats of beeswax applied on top.

Design or Plan used: Tsunami Bandsaw Box

At the time, I worked as an art director in the advertising industry. I became quite familiar with photography techniques used to sell products. I'm no photography expert, but I can usually represent my work decently. I agree with you that many woodworkers do not adequately represented their work with their photography skills.

As for my box, I only have a few pictures of this little box. Unfortunately, I no longer have access to the piece to photograph the drawer interiors any better. Each drawer was separated into two compartments and were flocked with a rich burgundy flocking which matched the walnut very nicely.

I like what I can see of the drawer interior - can you poet a better photo of that?
