This was made as a Valentine’s Day Gift for my lovely wife.
Her collection of fingernail polishes, pokey things and accessories grew to overflow a tiny wicker basket she was storing them in so she started to drop hints that a bigger, “nicer” case would be a great thing to make her.
So, if something is worth doing it’s worth over-doing!
Some might say I have gone a bit overboard on the design and build of this.
Besides the main compartment, which has two large areas and a tiny, divided slot to store strange things, it also sports four separate compartments that swing out from the main case to allow a clear view of everything in the case. I also used lexan on the outside pieces to further allow easy viewing.
Did I mention I may have gone a tad overboard on this?
The ends of the case are shaped like fingernail polish bottles.
All materials used were re-purposed. All the oak was from pallets. The lexan from the front screen of a scrapped television and the dowel from the scrap bin.
All corners were mitered or rabbited and the base painted black prior to assembly.
You know, I might have gone a bit overboard on this build….........
Oh yeah – my wife LOVED it. :-)
