I was messing around with the idea of making a chip case that could be carried around like a breif case . Most chip cases are made with the handle for easy transport . I wanted to make this box with nothing but wood (besides the screws ) The woods are zebra,curly maple,peruvian walnut and american walnut.

Thanks hope you like

Did you use a corebox bit to rout the trays?

Very, very sweet – the hinges are incredible, as is the rest of the piece.

Your project is great. Just about perfect. You couldn’t ask for more than wooden hardware…... if you built this for yourself, your friends will be wanted one too.

I like the all wood hinges and latches. Then the handle really stands out. Great ideas. Thanks for sharing.

Excellent looking chip case. I really like the attention to detail and the hinges and handle were a good touch. Nice piece.
