I’m making this as the title states for a retiring friend. It was supposed to resemble an old style blasting machine. I also wanted to experiment and see how long something like this would take to build. It went pretty fast, I still need to finish the inside, I;m planning to have a lift out tray in the top and just lining the drawer.
I used walnut for the body and cherry for the top, with a plunger handle made of sapelle. The drawer handle is paduak with an EOD badge. I’m planning to also add a small plaque to the front.
