This is an entry table I came up with for storing keys wallet and whatever else you need when head out the door. The inside compartment is a square walnut bowl the legs are walnut the rest is koa except for a few ebony accents the table is 33” tall 42” long 16” deep. The way the lids open is there are two ebony buttons on the under side of the table that pop the lids open. The reason I went with the bowls is I can’t stand making dovetail boxes and i enjoy turning bowls.

Beautiful table that is sure to grace any entryway! I like the idea of a turned bowl cut to fit the space. That is thinking outside the box!

I like your original design too. Great work and beautiful! I also like the security element in your design. Here in Norway many folks have key cabinets and such near their front door and this seems like an advantage for a thief to take keys not only to the house, but also the car and maybe the office too. Your design seems a very nice way to solve that problem.
