Once again I combined bandsaw box made from Alder with traditional mitered corners cut from my miter saw from Walnut and warped the bandsaw box creating a hybrid box. With Andy’s and Big Al’s help and advise I was able to create a wood grain flow on this box along with a way of a key for opening the top false door eliminating the small wooden key, It has a small pull out tray, a hidden drawer and a false door to a hidden compartment on top, I added a new design to my boxes and removed the wooden key in my previous boxes and have optioned the tray as the key to opening the false door located on top by way of magnets imbedded inside both the bottom of the tray and the bottom of the false door. Measurements are 10 1/2” L x 5 1/4” H x 6” D

Thanks for looking and always look forward to reading comments :)

Randy, thanks so much for the tip of the hat. I think your work is evolving wonderfully. I like your wood choice. I cut my lengths more exactly and undercut the length cuts with 45s so the grain matches perfectly on three corners. I have been thinking that some large corner splines could cut into the block of wood underneath and would tie everything together. This is a beautiful design. Thanks for sharing your creative journey with us. Keep boxing and keep posting.

Super, Randy. Like the ‘key’ innovation better than the last ones. This is a really well hidden hidden chamber.

Thanks Surfside, Bandsaw Blade is a 3/16 14 TPI with the Carter stabilizer, I get them from a local vendor, he makes some good blades at a very…. low cost.
