We got a new bed this weekend and in the process of moving things around the wife pulled this out of the closet to use again (err I guess I should have wiped off the dust sorry).
Anyway its made with paduak, oak and maple. The inside slider box is red cedar that slides on some divider/rails made also of red cedar (not shown under all the stuff hee hee).
I have a book of boxes by a guy from Arkansas who has the same name as me (Doug) but since I’m at my desk at lunch writing this and not at home i can’t remember the last name or the name of the book. But….... I seen a box in there with no hinges where the lid kind of slide into a groove in the back of the box and this is my attempt at the same type of design. If you pick up the handle at the front and let it kind of rock into the track at the back then there the lid sits and no need for hinges and the lid is out of your way while you browse your jewelry.
The bands of paduak are all solid wood just cut hap hazzard and glued back together and squared up, then finger joints to make the box.
Anyway maybe I’ll draw up a easy sketch here in acad and show ya, I’m pretty sure I have some old photos of this to show the inside also, hmmmm its colder then a witches $%$ out maybe tonight I’ll stay in and search for those photos to show ya all….
Thanks for looking, let me know what you think.
