I documented this build on my YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/MBMcwHkRNCY

Watches should be displayed, not stored. I have 4 watches so far in my relatively short life and needed a solution to get them off of the pegs on my closet wall. I made this watch box out of cherry

I used a dovetail style drawer lock joint to construct the display case. I turned the little knob on my mini lathe and purchased some antique finish hinges.

As every project teaches you something, this project was no different. I learned a few things for the next one I will build. The hinges I purchased were typical quality you would expect from a standard hinge. The watch box that was build was worth of much higher quality. Next time, I will go with Brusso hinges.

If you watch the video, I do not have a stopping mechanism for the lid. A chain or even a small nice looking stop on the back would suffice. But this problem can be solved with upgraded hinges as well.

If you have any questions please leave a comment below, message me on my website, or leave a comment on YouTube.

I like it. A very nice build. When I retired, I received a watch… I asked them, “why didn’t you give me this on my first day of work? I never would have been late to work”... LOL….......Seriously, the watch is very nice. It’s in a drawer and it still has the plastic over the battery that I never started. My watch is this: the sun rises, so do I. The sun sets, and goes nite nite….and so do I.. hahaha

Andy, well done video. In the interest of sharing you might consider using cut-down piano hinges and a stop chain. We use different techniques and have differing taste in appearance, but this is a very serviceable and utilitarian box. It is certainly better than hanging them on a peg in the closet or in the corner of a drawer. Keep boxing and keep posting.

A project a week is a tall order. Good luck.
