This box was designed to fit 20 watches, each wrapped around a small pillow. It is about 16 by 20 inches and 4 inches deep. The dividers are lap joint slats. The dovetails are hand cut and the finish is wet sanded poly. The knob was turned on the lathe and inserted into a forstner slot on the front of the box, screwed from behind. The top is bookmatched.

Very nice looking watch box! Would be nice to have a box like that—and be able to stock it with 20 watches!

Great looking box. I really like the book matched top and dovetails.
