This one of 2 boxes my wife requested to put her larger pieces of stained glass in to keep the colors separated and also so she can retrieve them easily. I did not have enough of the 1/2” plywood to make them both at once .
This box goes on a shelf in a small closet that I fitted with shelves years ago.
It is made from 1/2” Baltic birch plywood from LJ Doug Scott ( THANKS DOUG!!! , again). It is nailed and glued together. I had to splice a piece on the back of the top and bottom because I made a wrong size cut and wanted to salvage the wood I had. It is not the same thickness as regular 1/2” ( or 15/32”) plywood. She’ll never see it
The dividers are 1/8” maple plywood that was used for protective sheeting for maple plywood from another source. The box is finished with wiped on shellac.
I thought that she may have small pieces in the back that she needs to retrieve and it would not be a good idea to reach into those sheets of glass, so I made this little hook stick to go with it for just those times. I make hook sticks for all the cars for the stuff that drops down along side the console that you can’t get to with your hand.
