Our guild has a bandsaw box contest in December so I cut out this log for my entry. It is 5” diameter and 8 ” long birch log that is not quite dry. I put a magnet in the back of the drawer and a steel plate in the back of the box to hold it shut. I had originally put a groove in the bottom of the drawer to pull it open, but the magnet held too well so I put red bud knob on the front.
The drawer is black flocked on the inside and the inside cavity of the log is flat back painted.
I coated the whole thing with clear matte finish .
