I must give credit to all the LJs who have shown tissue boxes before me. I am always looking for ways to hide things in my projects. I saw an opportunity for a simple place to hide a home protection device close at hand. If you have some sort of fancy box that looks expensive setting around with jewels and things it could be stolen as a unit. With this very docile looking tissue box I think the thief might blow his nose but would not steal it therefore not stealing your gun. I have made a bunch of these from many different woods. This one is sassafras with walnut accents and a maple vein inlay. It has some 1/2” magnets to hold the top in place while also making it easy to push the to off to get to the goodies. Had a small surgery last week and the Doc said I can get back in the shop today. Hope I can find time to keep on posting things here. Thanks for looking.
