Hi Jocks,

I borrowed the idea from Nick Jones Designs. The woods are Makore Curly (box) and Padauk for the splines and dividers. It is about 9×10x2 1/2 inches..Black felt on the bottom.

Thanks for looking

Looks very nice—I love the wood choices and the sloped sides!

Nice valet box… how are the dividers held in… just glue?
