This box was made to house my latest teleidescope. It is made from osage orange and walnut. I almost threw it away when milling out the center. The Z axis shut off and when I turned it on ,I thought the number was the same as when it went off so I kept going deeper to hit the depth number and I put the cutter right through the bottom of the box and into the vise. I recovered with a walnut insert in the bottom and actually that was easier to cover with the felt than a bottom with a raised corner all the way around. Some things have a purpose for happening!!
I put in some clearance pockets to get my fingers in to pick up the scope and it has a brass pin and bushing for a latch.
It is finished with Danish oil and satin polyurethane.
