I had a customer that requested this box after finding me online, it was to be a Christmas gift for his son, it is designed to hold up to 10 large men’s watches along with other items, the wood for the main box he chose was my personal stock pile of figured Arizona Ash, this wood I had acquired over a year ago in log form curb side, which I milled into boards then set them to air dry, the lid, pulls and splines I chose Nogal for this, this box has a partitioned drawer a lift out tray and lots of storage space under the tray.
On all of my previous projects I’d always round the edges of the drawer edges along with the box face edges that where the drawer met at, this time I elected to not do that and leave the lines straight and sharp I think it gives it a more cleaner and nicer look, I did how ever round over the edges on the inside walls of the drawer.
This box measures 13” x 7 3/4×7 3/4 and is finishes in a single coat of tung oil, two coats of mixed wipe on poly satin finish and a final coat of paste wax.
Thanks for viewing and comments are always enjoyed.
