Bandsaw Boxes?

Postby daver » Fri Mar 29, 2013 10:02 am

Does anyone on that side of the pond make bandsaw boxes? Have they ever been popular?

I had an inquiry from someone about the possibility of using SketchUp to make designs for bandsaw boxes. Of course SketchUp would be very handy for that. I'm wondering if there's any interest in creating a tutorial for if I should just do this as a one-on-one thing with that person. The process I used to draw this one has operations that could be used for drawing things other than these boxes.

Intriguing. Until you used the term, Dave, I'd never heard it before.

I a;ways find your tutorials interesting and so I'd say 'Go for it'.

I'm just working through your tutorials, so a box making one would be very interesting.

Maybe that book is better than making bandsaw boxes in SketchUp.
