This instructional video will show you just how easy building a box can be. Even better, it’s a box with curved sides, with adds a very interesting detail. If you haven’t already seen it, be sure to watch Part 1 of this project series prior to watching this video.

Getting ready for a top and bottom

The edges of the glued up box need to be perfectly in plane with each other, or the top and bottom won’t join correctly. Sanding will take care of this, but it’s important to use the specific sanding trick we show you to make sure everything is PERFECTLY flat.

Laying out curves

The curves for your box may be slightly different than the curves we used when building a box on our video. But don’t worry, we’ll show you how to calculate the curves that your box requires. Pay particular attention to making certain you don’t cut into the box interior when cutting the curves.

Bandsaw boxes

If you enjoyed this technique for building a box, you may also enjoy making bandsaw boxes. Bandsaw boxes can be amazing, with the entire box usually coming out of one piece of wood.

Be safe

We want to make sure you’re using your bandsaw, and all of your tools, safely. Before working through this project you may want to go through a bandsaw safety refresher.
