I found this idea from LJ’s Roger in Kentucky who found it in the May 2005 Wood magazine. Look his up, as he did a cool job. Anyway, I put in the favorites for another day. Early in December my 16 year old was looking for a project as a Christmas gift and this fit the bill. This is his build. I used this project as a teaching opportunity and he has made his dad proud. We adjusted the size from the plan and made it slightly larger. It’s QSRO with a Kona colored stain, leather top and leather insert in the drawer.

Hey that looks great! Love the leather top, what a great place to put your keys and wallet.
Keep up the nice work.

you guys did a great job on that but the best part is getting the kids envolved doing something constructive,rather than sitting in front of screen all day or tweeting until there fingers bleed-lol.tell your son nice work,time to plan the next one.

Great looking valet box—and some great father/son time in the shop! Can’t beat that combo!

Father/son time in the shop. Precious! Also, that is one handsome valet. I want to build something like this so my youngest son doesn’t leave his keys and such on the kitchen table. Hmmm…maybe I’ll have him help make it!

Congratulations to your son on a wonderful project build. It really is a great looking valet. Congratulations to you, and your father before you, for passing on the woodworking craft.

Seeing pics of one of these in use, made it make a lot more sense for me. Nice job.

I couldn't figure out the back gap.
