This is a project I’ve promised my wife to complete for my own and for for her use, yet find myself procrastinating….. You certainly did a magificant job on this. What dimensions did you use? Thanks for sharing.

Rick, I am sorry to say I don’t remember the dimensions exactly. I want to say that inside was about eight inch by ten inch by six inches high. I plan this to be a one time thing (this was for my father) so I didn’t bother to keep up with any plans.

Thanks for the good words. My father built a heavy table for me once when I was young, very rough but well made and I used it for years for my computer and radio equipment. I think he was kind of interested in woodworking, but he never really had the time or money to get in to it. He did get to visit my shop once after I got it really set up, just before he died.

I’m sorry for your loss. You did a beautiful job on the box, it’s a wonderful gift to your Father. Very nice build.

Thanks for all the nice comments. It was difficult deciding whether to post this or not, but I think I made the right choice. When I needed ideas for the design, this is where I came to look at what others had done. It is only fair that I give back some inspiration to someone else.
