Had a client contact me after seeing my original Charge Book Box (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/53171) online. He was a a submariner and he also wanted his name and date of promotion lasered on the front. (I removed the name in the picture using photoshop to protect him) The frame of the box is walnut while the center section is maple. This time I used a commercial inlay between the walnut and the maple. I figured if they’re good enough for Charles Neil, they’re good enough for me. Finish is a coat of spray shellac and 2 coats of gloss polyurethane.

Very nice! It’s been over 30 years since I made Chief and have no idea where my charge book is stored. If I ever find it, I’ll commission one of your boxes for me.

@interpim, When I made Chief there were no charge book boxes. They drilled a hole through the upper left hand corner of a Record book, put a lanyard through it and we had to were the thing around our neck except to shower and sleep.

I’ve heard of that… some have mentioned attaching a chain to it, and then wrapping that chain around their waist and locking it with a padlock.
