I made this for my son’s wedding present (in addition to the cash, of course). Whenever I make a box or case for my sons, it has become a tradition for me to build in a secret compartment for them to find. This case has a back length of bottom molding held on with rare earth magnets revealing a shallow felt lined drawer. The top was coopered using a bird’s beak bit on the router table. The top unit of the chest is open to accept larger items and the bottom unit has one large drawer. I carved our family name in the top. I used red oak and lyptus for this project. I had to ship this bad boy clear across the country!
