Bandsaw Boxes

Advanced Woods students are building skills while learning how to create beautiful bandsaw boxes. The students start off with an idea, then turn the idea into a pattern which is then placed on a wood blank. Then it’s off to the bandsaw. Students gain a number of skills while completing this project, including resawing and scrolling with a bandsaw, sanding curves using a disc, spindle and orbital sander, gluing and clamping materials, and applying finishes. The best thing about this project is seeing the students learn about the perseverance required to create a high quality product. The sweet reward of the end product makes it all worth it.
