This is a custom request from a customer in hopes to have it done before Christmas in which I was able to pull off.
I used Mesquite on the walls and lid of this box, the inside is Alder and the splines along with the hinges and drawer pulls are Wenge.
It has two lift out trays a hidden drawer and a hidden compartment that is large enough to house pocket size and most compact size pistols. It measures 13” x 9 1/4” x 7”
The notch in the top center of the back wall is for a cell phone charging cable to pass through with the lid fully closed. I used dark brown flocking for the drawers and hidden compartment.
So the way it was made, the inner part of the box is actually a bandsaw box that I wrapped with typical miter joints to create the box. I custom make my own hinges.
It is finished with a single coat of tung oil and my own mix of wipe on poly satin finish.
Thanks for viewing and Merry Christmas.
