This was the latest project I made for myself.
It is a dresser or valet box made of maple
This was my first project with drawers, and I am quite pleased with it
dimensions are 12×6x3.5
finished with 2 coats of mineral oil.
as you can see it can hold my EDC and some other things

Thanks for looking,

That’s a great looking valet, and I really like the choice of wood

Mark, nice job. You should be proud of this. One of the most important jobs for a box is to help us organize our lives. This box certainly does that well. I liked the shot of all the pocket denizens put in their place. No watch? No wallet? I would have rounded more edges, but then I’m told everything I make looks like a used bar of soap. Keep boxing and keep posting.
