Something I made for my mother. It is a seven day medication reminder box that will look better on her breakfast table than the plastic thing she is currently using. It is made from bocote and ebony and the pill tray is curly maple with canarywood dividers. Much of this project used small pieces of wood that came from my scrap bin. Hinges are from Brusso. Finish is lacquer. Hope you all like it.

GREAT box and a great idea to get rid of the plastic thing.

Lovely. Both the design and the execution.

Excellent idea why have plastic when you can have a quality wood product.

Beautiful box, and an even more outstanding idea for all of old farts to keep our wonders of modern medicine organized. Thanks for the post, and I just hope SWMBO doesn’t see this one cause I’ll be in for another project.

Great idea! I have a feeling you might be seeing quite a few of these popping up on this site. I know I just added this to my “must make” list. Thanks for posting.

Stunning wood!
Your design is very clean and works well with the strong grain.

Beautiful wood – excellent craftsmanship – unusual
ends – the elongated shape is very appealing and different
and may be more user friendly.
