This is a contracted job I got from the last craft sale. It is a walnut watch case designed to hold 10 watches. The last shot is Kelly picking up her watch case. I think she liked it!!
It is 4” x 21 1/2” x 3 1/4” high and made from solid walnut. The top was routed to .050” thick in the center to insert a piece of maple that would show through when the letters were routed in…..........last process shot.
I roughed out all the holes with a forstner bit and then used HNC machining on the mill to finish all the pockets 2” deep.
The lettering was done by Randy Smith, the instructor at the high school where I volunteer.
The case is finished with Danish oil and then 3 stage buffed. I did not want to use a lacquer or poly on it as it might show wear and maybe chipping around where all the watches are inserted.
