This a one of several boxes I build thirty years ago and they are all still in good condition after my daughters put them through the mill but now they appreciate them .
Made in the days when oak was the wood of choice and hardware like a magnetic catch was hard to find .
The boxes are made from solid oak and oak veneer over ply and MDF with piano hinges and magnetic catches .
The interior is lined with red velvet including a ring drawer which is foam with liner
Stain and varnish are the finish .
Size is 13”H x 15” W x 7”D

Wow! That is a beautiful piece and sure has “quality” written all over it. Man, it has weathered 30 years just fine!

Hey Klaus, that is even older than this one
Looks like it held up a little better as well.

It is always nice to look back at what we’ve made in our lives. Give yourself a pat on the back for me.

Very impressive work for a 5 year old!

Those curved doors would be impossible for me.

Is oak not the wood of choice anymore? Damn I guess the project I’m working on will make good firewood then haha. Looks like it was built yesterday… a tribute to fine craftsmanship. Very stylish, I agree.
