This is another project for my son-in-law, Zach, following his design for adequate storage for his watches. The box is cherry and wenge. To line the box, I used the glue and spray flocking which worked very well. This was a Christmas gift in ‘11. Christmas eve I was waxing and buffing the box to put a super slick sheen on when I actually dropped it, destroying the hidden, barrel style hinges, so then I had to repair that and made the switch to the hinges you see here. This turned out very well and is put to good use everyday. Thanks for looking.

Very nice box! I would like to have a need for a box to store my extensive watch collection in but…

I don’t have an extensive watch collection! :)

Great box and super bum deal on the broken hidden hinge. At least you kept your cool and salvaged a piece that needed to be completed. I would be proud to own such a nice gift and I am positive that Zach is too! The box just has that MANLY (deep, booming voice) look to it!
