Make a bandsaw box. I'm sure you can do better than me.


I made a “bandsaw” box without a bandsaw a couple of months ago. Recently, I purchased a small banchtop bandsaw. I decided to try to make an actual bandsaw box, albeit limited by the saw's modest 
dimensions.

I had one bad attempt that failed because I couldn’t make the curves I needed with the included ¼ inch blade. I bought a pack of 3 blades (1/8”, 1/4”, and 3/8”) and had more luck with the 1/8 inch blade. However, the cuts were very rough, even on the straight cuts. I had to do a lot of sanding, and the fit of the drawer is, well, poor. I don't know if it's the saw if or I am doing something wrong. I'm going to try again sometime, after I get better with the bandsaw.
