I have been a wood worker for 18 years but I am brand new to this site. This is my first post. I look forward to meeting new woodworking enthusiasts and learning from their experiences. I welcome comments and questions.
I wanted to build something special for a good friend of mine for Christmas. I thought long and hard and came up with this poker case. This is my first attempt at building one of these and I learned a lot. The drawers were the hardest part as I had to make several practice pieces to get the grooves the right size for the poker chips. The whole thing is made from 3/4” California red oak. I used my CNC machine (ShopBot desktop) to cut the top and the drawer grooves. I finished it with a red oak stain and lacquer. The 3 drawers hold a total of 800 poker chips and one deck of cards. The top opens up and can hold another 10 – 12 decks.
