Pictured: Another new design, Idea’s just keep coming, This box would be great as either a Men’s and or Ladies Valet/Jewelry Box, this box has very large storage compartments and is a combination of a bandsaw box wrapped with another wood which I used mitered joints along with splines added , there was no slicing off of the front and back that’s what makes it unique and also my own design, I used Alder for inner core of this box, wrapped with Cypress and used Walnut for the corner splines, all three tools were used in creating this box, Table saw, miter saw and bandsaw.
What makes this box so special and unique is that it offers many great features with a lot of space for storage and also hiding things, under the lid on top are two divided trays. It has two very large drawers, a hidden drawer, a very large secret compartment with a false bottom door located on top of the box and two pull out trays, one of the trays is the secret to opening the false bottom door on top, by using the lift out the tray and strategically placing it on top of the false door located on top of the box lining up the magnets it latches onto the door then by lifting the tray out it reveals the hidden compartment on top of the box, once again this is my own design and creation a one of a kind.
the upper hidden compartment with the false bottom door measures 6 3/8” wide x 4 3/4” long x 1 5/8” deep, Shown in the photos, the bottom left drawer houses the hidden drawer along with a pull out tray and measures 7” long x 4 1/2” wide x 1 1/2” deep” once you pull the drawer out and turn it facing the rear if reveals the hidden drawer which measures 6 1/4” long x 3 3/4” wide x 1” deep, the tray is the key to opening the top false bottom door located on top of the box the small tray measures 4” long x 3” wide x 1 1/2” deep and the final bottom right drawer measures 7” long x 4 1/2” wide x12 1/2” deep This is my own design and creation.
Finishing: First coat is finished it with one coat of tung oil, (dried) second, third and forth coat were wipe on poly and then the final coat I use Minwax paste wax.
