My wife hates clutter – I like to see everything I own. Here’s the compromise; the box and dividers are marblewood, mitered joints with cocobolo and rosewood keys. The top is a floating raised panel made from a knotty piece of red oak scrap. Finished with danish oil. Lined with brown velvet.
I made every mistake possible in the construction of this box and learned a heckuva lot.
It now sits on the entry table in the hall and all of my stuff can be seen by lifting the lid.
Woodworking saves another marriage!
I built the lightbox someone posted last week and used for the photos. Came out pretty nice.
