I made this box for my dad for Christmas. It’s Walnut and Bloodwood and Holly.
7.5” x 5.75” x 4.5” tall
The secret bottom tray is 1/4inch deep and can be removed with a magnetic key that is stored inside the box in the wall of the box. The lid is one big dovetail which snaps into place with embedded magnets. The secret bottom tray stays in place with magnets as well. The “key” has a much more powerful magnet which is what allows you to remove the tray.
The F is holly inlay. The “F” is for our last name. I did the routing for that on my Router Boss. I also made all of the dovetail cuts using my Router Boss.
I lined the bottom with dark red suede wrapped around a soft pad that sticks to the bottom.
I sanded up to 1000 grit for a very smooth finish. The 1000 grit are Mirka foam pads for the random orbital sander.
It’s finished with 3 coats of Deft danish oil and 3 coats of Renaissance wax.
