This is a special request from a customer that also added in making a change in my design to allow for deeper drawers for the large bulky items that men carry more so wrest watches, the customer wanted a place to store his wrist watch in aside other then setting it in the top tray so I had to make a change design in the drawers to allow for this making them deeper, another option that I’ve been juggling was the phone charging capability I was balancing on the fence to drill an oval shaped hole to allow for the cord to pass through on the top tray wall but I just couldn’t see nor did it make since drilling a hole when the cord can easily be draped over the top wall for easy access to charging a phone etc….
The inner of the box is Alder cut as a bandsaw box then wrapped with mitered splined joints of Texas Cedar Elm with slabs for the drawer fronts to take place of bandsaw cut fronts, the large drawer on the left has a hidden drawer along with a small lift out tray, the top right side under the lift out tray on top hides a false door which is accessed by way of a key, the small tray is the key by way of using magnets to reveal a large hidden area, the drawer pulls along with the keys are Wenge.
The box measures 11” x 6” H x 7” D and is finished with a single coat of tung oil, two coats of satin wipe on poly my own mix and a final coat of paste wax.
Most of my projects are made from a single log of various sizes in length but not long enough for accurate book matching plus once they are stickered for drying they get mixed up so it’s impossible to get an exact book match but I do the best I can by flipping boards over to find which works best.
Thanks for viewing and all comments are enjoyed and replied too.
Edit In Not shown in these pictures, I added a dark brown felt to the drawers, top trays and lift out trays before shipping to customer.
