I constructed this Watch and Pen Box of solid Wenge and Birdseye Maple. When the top is opened, it reveals storage for eight watches. The sliding drawer under the top watch compartment provides storage for up to 17 fountain pens. The fountain pen tray is also removable to allow for storage of other items. All compartments are lined in felt.

I do not use any stains or dyes when creating my pieces. All colors seen are the natural colors of the wood, which will continue to deepen and enrich over the years.

Beautifuly crafted with all those spacers, drower and other details. When you make it with wenge and maple it must look good. Awesome contrast.

Really beautiful! great combination of contrasting woods. I like you lifts and pulls also. This had to have been a fun project to see take shape.

Exquisite! Please share your secret for not complaining about splinters from that wicked wenge wood! I have a couple of nice pieces that I would like to use without getting splintered into oblivion.
