My daughter asked me if I could make a watch box for her boyfriend for his birthday, and of course I was absolutely delighted to do it for her!! Anything for my daughter !!!........ anyway, she wanted space for several watches that “collapse” and a few for the “bracelet” style watches. We went through my samples and this is the wood combination that she picked out….. I really like it !

There is room for 9 watches in each level, 6 collapsable and 3 bracelet, that should last him for awhile…..

Again, Lacewood with Wenge in the lid and for the accents, lift and dividers.
The lifts on each end of the tray are attached with hidden splines.

Dimensions are 15×9 x 5 and the finish is Watco Danish Oil and Black Bison Wax…..

Oh, and BTW, she told me he absolutely loved it and now needs to get more watches…....lol

Very nice, Gene – lovely choice of woods, subtle design … how many watches does your daughter’s boyfriend have?!

A very lucky boy anyway!

What finish did you use? Also, it looks like you used the slot hinges?
