This started out as another simple tissue box but I wanted to add some “space”, kind of like what I did with my previous remote control caddy, just smaller.

I made a set of these, both the same.

The wood is fumed white oak, apricot for the drawer front and top, walnut pull.

It came out a bit more ‘geometric’ looking then I had hoped for but in the famous words of Hoggett: “That’ll do pig”.

The drawer has a magnet embedded in the rear with a mating magnet embedded from the inside of the tissue cavity.
This lets the small drawer self close with a satisfying click.

Thanks for looking!

Really beautifully made. What a great idea! I love the handle.

Dang Jerry, not 2 minutes after posting!
Thanks for the comment re. the handle. This is the first time I’ve tried making a multi part handle like this, and still have a few 100 of those copper rivets to use up 8^)

Very nice looking desk organizer—looks like it has room for just about everything!

Very neat design. Like the combination of tissue box holder plus storage. Does the tissue box still slip into place from the bottom or do you have a different type of access?

Hey, Splint, nice job! It does sort remind me of a Mayan pyramid. :)

- BB1

The box is inserted through the bottom. The base “plate” overlaps the hole by about 1/8” on two sides. This keeps the box from sliding out if the unit is lifted up.

That’s it!
I new it looked familiar somehow.
If I add more tiers and align it to the stars, maybe it’ll produce apricot scented tissues???
