As all of us Lumberjocks age we find ourselves requiring a few RX’s to take daily. Bottles on the counter just won’t work for most of us and the plastic unit from Wal-Mart just would not due for a real woodworkers use. I build a simple WOODEN daily use RX box. The wood is a mystery as I made the box from some hardwood flooring pieces I got from a local flooring company. I think it is Brazilian Cherry. I know the lock isn’t “child proof” but we keep it up from the grand-kids.

Great idea Doug! With a Plexiglas sliding lid you could see if you took you med with out opening it! But that might take away from it’s nice look! Nice work!

Great idea, Doug! Fiddling with those plastic lids when refilling is a PITA. A sliding lid is much better, and the compartments are generously sized, too.

Very clever idea Doug. The sliding top is a plus with individual compartments. I recently made what I call a pill bottle that I use when I’m away for a few days instead of carrying each bottle but they all get thrown in that. I may have to use your idea. Hope you don’t mind.

Thanks for the kind words, the idea is yours to do with as you like. Too bad it is something so many of us need.
The holes are just done with a forstner bit. KISS plan.

Hunter, it is a lot better to take the pills than the alternative, I want to see if I can stick around to spoil some
