Poker Chip Box I made a few years ago for my dad’s 80th birthday.
It’s made of mesquite milled to 1/2” on my Dewalt planer.
This was one of my most difficult and complex projects I’ve ever done but am really pleased with the finished product.
The bottom of the box has a hidden compartment you are able to access by using a magnet at the right location.
I think I remember the plans were from a Wood Magazine issue.

I like it – very interesting design with drawer and lift out tray.
