I enjoy table top games, and my nephew went through a phase where he was playing a game that centered around superheros with dice and cards. It seemed a mess to keep track of, so I set out to use up some of my wood scraps. Project was conceptualized and created in an afternoon, pretty much winging it the whole way, and the finish was added the following day, a tung-oil finish with no tung oil (naturally). 90% of the work was done on my table saw’s cross-cut sled.

This project was finished back in 2015, and I neglected to post it until now. Shame on me. :)

Bob, nice idea. I think organizing stuff is what boxes do best. Just for an exchange of ideas this was my take on a dominoes box. This was a box to organize Pokemon cards. I like how you added the walnut section to serve as a grip to open the top. That serves to simplify and strengthen the top while simplifying the construction as well. Good call. I might have made the inside boxes into lift out units. Keep boxing and keep posting.

Thanks for the kind comments.

The walnut served a little more purpose then grip. Once I reached the slide I was running out of maple, so the slide is actually made out of three thin rabbeted pieces. I figured that wouldn’t last long term so the scrap slab of walnut (that was long enough but not wide enough) came into play :D You can see the separation marks in maple lid clearly in one of the pics.
