This is one of the first box projects that I completed, it was a Christmas gift for my daughter in 2009.
I used left-over soft maple from my workbench & purpleheart. In the tray I installed a musical movement of “Daddy’s Little Girl”. I made the middle splines a bit longer so they protrude through the side of the box to support the tray. I also used a detachable base that can be used as a hidden compartment (picture #4).
I had a local woodworking supplier CNC router the initial on the birdseye maple lid & I filled w/darkened epoxy & a matching 1/16” band around the edge of the top.
Its always funny looking back at projects completed years ago and wondering why I did things a certain way.
Thanks for looking.
