I keep having weddings to go to, and I needed something I could make in a day for an old friend from college. This box was actually started from the middle so I could glue two layers at once, and then each pair of layers was shaped with a pattern bit (with bearing) on a router. The inner layers are alternating pine and oak, and the ends are poplar… hey, that’s all I can get locally! After sanding to 220 (that’s about all I had time for), I hit it with a coat of tung oil and paste wax. The end cap swivels to open the chamber, and the dowel it’s attached to is long and snug enough that someone can’t pull it out by accident.
