This is the project that started my love of woodworking. Originally, I planned it to be about 5 inches high. After a couple of bad cuts on the table saw, it ended up being just shy of 4 inches in height. After I put the poker chips in, I have about 1/16th of an inch to spare under the lid. Friends tell me they like the sleek design. I just smile knowingly.
Side note: I have been stalking everyone’s work on LJ for about a year. Your creativity and craftsmanship are truly inspiring. I decided to finally join and show some of my work from over the years. Knowing that I will be posting on LJ in the future ups the craftsmanship bar for me.
