3 1/2” x 6 1/4” x 9 1/4”

Sliding tray made of bloodwood and walnut,

Well, I have developed a specific procedure for making this style of box in order to insure getting the lid on square and lined up properly.

I proceeded to not follow my own directions resulting in an errant cut, whereupon I began making compensations.

This is the final result. I actually did make another lid that fit perfectly but my wife vetoed it. She really liked this one.

Thanks for looking.

Thanks Monte, thanks Jerry. Forget to mention I put in a leather bottom for the first time. Came out pretty well.
