Hi everyone

I have made what is essentially a compartmentalized storage box. It’s intended use is to hold a watch collection, though it could be used for any collection of individual pieces. The box is 600 mm long x 280 mm wide x 90 mm tall (and 107 mm with the lid)

The carcass is made from Red Gum, showing considerable figure. The dividers are of QLD Maple again showing beautiful figure. The lid consists of a fiddle back Tasmanian Blackwood border and a book matched Tasmanian Myrtle panel.

The finish is Organoil Hard Burnishing Oil. Each compartment is approximately 120 mm x 110 mm x 90 mm. The compartments shall be fitted with Black Leatherette pillows (100 mm square).

Regards,

Rob

Rob, nice work. Beautiful wood. Great finish. How do you keep your front to back dividers from shifting around?

Thanks for the kind words everyone. Big Al, I use epoxy to glue the dividers to the sides and to each other. I know it doesn’t seem that it would be strong enough, but I have a couple of boxes placed, that are in areas where they are used heavily on a daily basis for pulling and replacing customer account pages. One has been in place for over 6 years and is still going strong!

Regards,

Rob

Great looking box! Like the beautiful wood combo and finish used, the grain patterns look amazing.
