My wife Sue wanted a box to keep her paper clips in.

This is what I came up with.
I got the idea while making a bandsaw box.
I made this one with caribbean rosewood and some pallet wood that I used on the sides.

That’s a great idea – nothing worse than having paper clips get stuck in the corner of the box. You solved that problem really nicely.

The rosewood grans shows up very nicely. If you hadn’t said anything about using pallet wood for the sides, I would not have guess it. Nicely done, Chuck!

Those look like quality places to keep the clips. Watch out you may have to make other matching desk pieces.
