Men’s Valet Box, Hidden Compartments, Texas Cedar Elm And Nogal
Men’s Valet Box, can also be used as a ladies jewelry box, this box is a very unique box with very large storage compartments, great for holding lots of stuff, I handcrafted this box using the following woods, the inner core of this box is Alder and is wrapped in Native Texas Cedar Elm with Nogal used for the drawer pulls, lid, hinges and the bottom for large lift out tray.
It offers two lift out trays, two very large drawers, and a hidden drawer, by pulling on the large drawer on the left and turning it so you’re facing the back of the drawer reveals the hidden drawer, there is a very large secret compartment with a false bottom door located on top of the box under the lift off false bottom door, one of the trays is the secret to opening the false bottom door on top, by pulling out the tray on top and setting it aside then strategically placing the small coin tray from the drawer on top of the false door located on top of the box lining up the magnets it latches onto the door then by lifting the tray out it also lifts the false bottom door revealing the hidden compartment, In the top of the back wall under the lid center is a notch for your phone charging cord to lay in while the lid is closed, once again this is my own design and creation a one of a kind, all drawers are lined with dark brown felt.
Measures 13 ” long 7” high x 8” wide, the hidden compartment measures 7” x 5 3/4” x 2” It is Finished in a single coat of Tung oil and several coats of my on mix of satin wipe on poly and a final coat of paste wax.
