Another one of my poker chip boxes . Im getting a little better with the inlay kit the letters came out pretty darn good . The idea of the box is to make it look like just a regular open lid box ….but i reality its trays that hold the chips .I really took my time on this one …even hand plained all the saw marks (a first for me ) . This is my first attempt at wipe on poly …think ill be doing more of it . I hope my customer loves it

Oh yeah the wood combinations are Walnut ,curly maple and hard maple . The lid is book
matched (cant really tell) Curly maple ,I glued it to a solid piece of maple . The coves are also curly maple and the rest walnut

Nice work – you just can’t beat that curly maple – the finish really makes it pop…..

I like it so much I want to make one. Would you please share how you made the trays for the chips?

the trays were made with a 1 5/8 box bit on a router table. the coves are 6 1/2 long to hold 50 chips but you may have o measure and make sure with your chips
