this is older project but still a favorite
I chose V2 for the title because the design represents a two cylinder motor bike engine in about half scale .
Building this box has been a bit of a challenge for me since I have never attempted a project like this and I wanted to incorporate the spirit of the contest motto ,like “twist, secret and jewelry” .
The box is built mainly using the bandsaw and has a drawer ,two secret compartments that twist and a couple jewelry type decorations .
The cylinders are held in place by a bayonet type lock(see bolts at back and slot in cylinder ) and can be removed with a simple twist but first the air filter has to be removed forward as it locks both cylinders and keeps them from being turned . The inside of the cylinders are about 9”high by 2” in diameter ,room for lots of stuff to be hidden .
This band saw box is a present to my son in law .
The bike he owns has a beautiful looking engine which is the inspiration for this box design .

I still like this one. I’ve had two bikes with V engines, a Harley and a Honda so I have a soft spot for the design to start with.

The early bird gets the worm but its the second mouse that gets the cheese.

very cool!
