First box out after the newly completed addition to the shop and for this year.
This is a lidless open top tray box with a lift out tray, under the lift out tray is a false bottom door that is opened by using a smaller tray located in one of the pull out drawers, it acts as a key by way of magnets, the drawer on the right also has a hidden drawer, by pulling it out and turrig it around reveals the hidden drawer, the Arizona Ash used in this project is wood that I acquired from curb side in log form in which I milled and air dried, the drawer pulls and splines are made from Wenge, it measures 13” x 7 1/4” x 8” and is finished in a single coat of tung oil two coats of wipe on poly, 50/50 mixture my blend and a final coat of paste wax.
In the past I had been trying out my own methods of adding felt to the drawers but had some failures thus I went back to what I know is proven to work and best which is flocking but… instead of the glue used in flocking I used enamel slow drying paint which appears to work better.
Thanks for viewing and all comments greatly enjoyed.
