The projects posted here are getting so good that I’m starting to feel inadequate! But I’m going to post this one and see if anybody knows what it is to be used for. Here is a hint: if you know what it is, you may not want to admit it. :-)

You can look here for one more hint.

Don’t feel inadequate. There is no skill test to become or remain a LJ! It’s in the spirit of information sharing and project showcasing. Put a 2×4 together with some brads, and it will appeal to someone. If you’re 7 years old, it will appeal to even more people. HA. I think it holds game pieces.

Fine box, maybe it holds golden thread.

Hmmm…it certainly COULD be used to hold spools of thread or half-dollars. Good guesses, but no.

Not game pieces either, mot.

Does the coin embedded in the top, hold a clue?

Great Box and congratulations to the owner of the coin on top. That is quite an accomplishment.

The coin on top is a 1 year AA coin. (thanks google) I’m guessing the top of the box holds more coins of various lengths of time but I’m not sure what goes in the bottom unless its bulk storage.

PS my origingal guess before looking at the hint was poker chips.

I’ve been sober since 86 Charlie and I’m very proud of it. Is it a Box to hold coins for AA members who have achieved years of sobriety that are passed out at AA meetings?jockmike

Yep…you nailed it Mike. I think Debbie really knew it on the first guess, though….she was just being sly.

I just picked up my 10-year chip a couple months ago. I figured I could do better than the plastic compartment box my Wednesday night group has been using.

Finest kind work. Looks like a retro fifties tackle box in wood. And I gotta also be congratulatory to whatever group that uses this item to celebrate birthdays. You should feature it in your district’s newsletter (didn’t I see someone recently make a reference to lunch meetings and someone commented “Thank God for lunch meetings”. I sense a thread here). ;^D

LOL. Thanks, Douglas.

The big handle on top really didn’t help the piece aesthetically, but whoever sets up the meeting wil thank me for being able to grab it with one hand.

my guess before getting through the comments was chess pieces…congrats on the sobriety…and beautiful box to match something almost as beautiful (as the sobriety)...

and on your comment regarding worksmanship??? anytime you feel your work is not up to snuff…just take a look at my projects to feel better…hahahahha—-your work is greeat…and like the others said—-it is about learning and sharing a sense of community…

Thanks, Matt. (Nothing at all wrong with your projects either, BTW., ...I may steal the guitar stand idea, but I’ve got to modify the design for acoustic.)
