What makes band saw boxes so wonderful? They don’t require a shop full of expensive tools, they have unlimited design potential, and they’re easy to make. For years, woodworker Donna Menke has researched every aspect of the process, accumulating a wealth of knowledge about band-saw use, safety precautions, construction, and finishing techniques. Here, she passes on those ideas and skills, explaining all the basics of selecting and handling the wood, cutting, sanding, fitting edges, gluing, making repairs, and giving the box a gorgeous surface treatment, such as carving or inlay. The breathtaking projects begin with an easy, no-fail Bangle Box, and include a mahogany Star Box, a Man in the Moon box with a segmented lid, and many others.
A Selection of the F & W Book Club.

Book News
Menke combines her childhood experience in her family's woodworking shops with her formal education in art to describe and demonstrate step-by-step how to make boxes of pretty much any shape with a band saw. Her categories are basic boxes, nesting boxes, puzzle and sliding-lid boxes, pivoting-top boxes, hinged boxes, and drawered boxes. Some are shaped like fruit or animals.
