My wife has been getting into the essential oil scene recently, I think she is crazy, and she wanted a display as the cardboard box was getting out of control and a little ugly. She asked that I build her a box to put them in and when I was looking for inspiration I saw some of these display units online. I figured I can make them myself and save a few dollars and get practice using my new drill press.. I used the table saw to rip the oak and then the miter saw to cut to length. When I was drilling the holes for the small unit I messed up and one of them are out of line with the others.. Since this is going to stay at my house we can live with it. If I were selling these I would redo it..

She loves then and my mother in law already wants me to make her some.. I guess this was a success..

White oak from big box, sanded to 220 and finished with spray lacquer.

I had a Essentials Oil vendor ask me to make a display for her sales table – been putting it off because of other projects. I had intended to use walnut but the oak looks better

My daughter just started in this business.
What size are the holes?
