Book matched spalted oak top, figured white oak sides, curly maple for the bottom and the lid frame.

I found a local wood salvager with a seemingly endless supply of figured woods, and this oak caught my eye. I don’t think I ever saw oak with this type of pattern.

I’m getting smarter in my old age and made two at the same time to cut setup effort.

I posted another poker chip box project on this site some time ago but its more than 3x this size and, loaded with 1,800 chips, nearly impossible to carry. These will be easier to sell.

Very nice. I would recommend a latch of some kind to keep it closed. I know when my buddies and I play poker, much beer is involved and more than a couple of times the chips have ended up on the floor because the chip box got knocked over or off the table.

Love the wood though.
