Greetings Jocks,

Had a few scraps around the shop and decided to make a box. The woods are mahagony and pine (like from a
2×4). The pine had a bird’s eye figure (really). I didn’t get a good pic of it, but the 4th pic shows it the best. Well, then I thoght I wound add some little drawers to make it more useful. The drawers can be moved laterally to get to
the bottom layer. Then I decided to make fancy dividers for the drawers. Lastly, I decided to make a custom lid handle. You know how it is sometimes; I’ll do this, then this, and why not?

By the way, can you see the owl? He’s on the inside of the lid. He just another little suprise.

That looks cool Nikki!

BTW, those little sliding drawers are actually called ‘tills’.

Great looking box! The owl looks great—he looks a little hungry…......!

I see an owl, one of those “gray” aliens with a sour look on its face, a moth, a winged man and a crucifix, all in the same spot.

What a great use of scraps Nikki and yes I can see the owl. I bet there was a bit of a difference cutting joinery in the pine and then the mahogany. The joinery came out great though. Well done!
