I had some thick oak laying around and decided to make something different (for me anyway.) I made a large, square box with a lift out tray. The tray came out pretty sweet, with piston-like air displacement.

It has a plywood/ mahogany veneer inset top. Walnut splines, and a cedar floor in the tray. I used a piano hinge, and a tung oil/ wipe on poly finish.

It’s a substantial box, now to decide what to put in it… diamonds, rubies, tootsie rolls, thread, hmmmmm.

Jerry, nice solid design and feel to this. I like the lift-out. Looks like this one worked out well. Glad your planer is rolling again.
