I needed something to drop my keys and wallet in and I came up with this. It’s a very simple design with Wenge miter keys and a Cedar bottom. It measures about 6X6X4tall. The finish is sprayed on polycrylic.

Thanks for taking a look.

See you next time.

I thought about keys hanging on some small rack but this idea with box and to hang it on the wall just crossed my mind.

Thanks. I really like it. I have one spot on the counter (next to a fish tank :-) ) that I always throw my keys,wallet, packet knife,change and the occasional screw driver or Gerber multi-tool. LOl. I had considered make a key hanging thingy-me-bob so everyone could keep their keys on it, but I know that the chances of even me using it where slim. So I’ve been slowly making boxes for everyone. My wife’s is a really pretty Mahogany one that has a lid and sits up high on a shelf. She says it’s to pretty to scratch up with keys so I still have to find them every morning. I figured if I made a pretty one for myself and showed her it’s okay to beat them up a little, she might start using hers…. We all have our dreams and hopes. LOL.

I hope everyone has had a great start in the new year. I am looking forward to all the great things this year has to offer.

That grain/s is real nice. Like the Wenge splines also.

Very nice and useful small box Joey. It is always good to have these to put wallet, keys, spare change and those many miscellaneous items in. I am surprised you did not leave the cedar unfinished to get that nice cedar smell.

Years ago I bought a set of4 teak bowls at a garage sale for $3 and they all get used in differrent areas of the hou se and barn for storing and organizing all those little items. I could not even come close to paying for the wood at that price…but it does not have the same meaning as something I would have made myself.

I usually leave them unfinished if they have a lid. This was such a quick little project, I never even considered it.

That looks handy and you used some beautiful woods that others would have tossed as being too small to be useful.
