i dont know how to name this type of box, slide? bread box chest? dunno, just let me know.

this was done by my Dad, i helped a little bit but it was his spare time project, we usually work together in different orders, but he did this on his own.

its made of Jobillo, and measures 10×5x5 in.

I don’t know the name of ths type box either, so let’s just go with fantastic. Looks like opening the drawer might pull open the top, correct? Either way, it’s great.

Very nice box, your father did an excellent job on it. Would have been good to see some pics of the making of the Tambour top.

A really great design like this deserves a really great name – something that lets the person using the box decide how to use it. May I suggest “Roll-Top Novelty Box”?
