Watchmaker's Hammer Storage Case

I needed a case to hold my new watchmaker’s hammer and all the interchangeable heads it comes with.
So, I took an off-cut of cherry I had from a recent project and monkeyed around at the bench while watching a ball game today and made this storage case.
I resawed the board and penciled around the pieces on one piece. Then, I scroll sawed the cut-outs and created the mitered box. The miter splines were added and the box was assembled, sanded and finished with Boiled Linseed Oil and Wax.
The last photo is what I started out with.

It was a fun project on a nice day out in the shop.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

That’s a sweet looking case, Eric!

I never realized that there was a watchmaker’s hammer.

Nice and well designed box Eric. Everything should have its place, particularly such nice tool. However, I wonder why a watchmaker would need a hammer. To wreck it when not working after several hours spent on it !! :)
By the way, you didn’t say who won the ball game ! :)

Best,
Serge
