I made this intending to use it as a domino box but was 1/16” too short… oh well. I used a board with a knot in it that I resawed for the sides. I included the void as a finer pull in the lid. Enjoy!

I think it’s beautiful with that eye in the lid, nature is sweet to us.

Very nice. I just built almost the exact same box with my daughter. Ours has a maple top with a knot. I’ll post it after the final finish goes on.

Nicely done. Is the box too short, or the dominos just too long? Maybe the next project is a well fitted custom set of dominos?

Now there’s the real meaning of thinking outside…. or should I say “on top of the box”. Really like the idea of the void being the lid pull…... or are you sure you’re just “knot” trying to cover your mistake???.......... lol

Totally agree w/ dustyal…...... time to make a set of custom dominoes.

A man after my own heart. I love nothing more than showcasing knots or other odd inclusions in wood – it’s what give it character as a once living thing!
