"5 minute band sawn box"

I decided to have some fun with my new bandsaw the other day, so I made this quickie band sawn box. I didn't take pictures of the process but it was so easy to make that I'll put up the pictures of the next one. Here's some pics.

This was literally made in like 5 minutes. With this one I didn't even really plan ahead. I just was practicing.

It was all made from one piece of wood, which makes it kinda neat.
                                          (I'll make another to show you how it was made. So stay tuned!)

"New" Bandsaw

Here's some pics of a bandsaw I bought from my neighbor for $25.  I saw it sitting under a pile of stuff and covered in dust. We pulled it out and I asked if he would be willing to sell it. He did and I wound up with a great tool! I took it home, cleaned off the dust, and the saw turned out to be a decent tool. I did a little tweaking, got everything in line, and bought a new blade. Voila! Good as new.

Now I need to start practicing techniques and get this tool to work!
