Men’s Open Top Valet Box Made From Texas Cedar Elm
Pictured is a men’s valet box that I handcrafted from Texas Cedar Elm, this Elm was part of several logs that I harvested via my chainsaw from my dad’s neighbor the tree had been dead standing over two years, the corner splines and drawer pulls are bubinga and the inner core is alder. This box has great features, it offers two drawers, one pull out tray a large hidden compartment behind a false bottom door and a hidden drawer located inside of the large drawer, the small tray is the secret to opening the false bottom door on top, by pulling 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 this is my own design and creation a one of a kind. It measures 12” x 5” x 6” and is finished in a single coat of tung oil, several coats of wipe on poly and a final coat of paste wax.
This is a bandsaw box only it’s wrapped with mitered corners and splined, my own design, I call it a hybrid as it’s not solely focused around the bandsaw but the miter and tablesaw as well.
In the pictures the box is actually sitting on top of one of the Elm logs it was made from.
Thanks for Viewing.
