From an older plan out of a Wood magazine from 2005, with a few “tweeks” of my own. It’s about 15”x12”x6”. Built from 30+ year old Walnut, and finished with 4 coats of Minwax water based poly. Adorned with a 12 gauge shotshell as the drawer pull. and some nicely tooled leather top and drawer liners (I found the leather on a “scrap” rack at my local Tandy Leather store). The coin tray is from a small hunk of Spalted Hackberry block from one of our own LJ’s, (Randy) Thank you again. Thnx for checkin in. Leave me some feedback, good/bad/ugly.

That’s a very classy Valet Roger! The coin tray is a nice added touch and contrast with the dark walnut nicely!

Oh my God, Roger. That is just beautiful!!!!! I hope that is made for someone who will really appreciate it. I can see all the work that went into that.
