One of my co-workers is retiring tomorrow and he really loves his Ford truck.
Just recently he bought a new one as a gift for himself.
It’s a blue one so I made him this “band-saw box” and coated the inside with matching blue flocking.
Since there is no actual handle, I made a hole in the back so he can push the drawer out with his finger.
The office group will have a retirement party for him in the next couple of weeks.
I can’t wait to see his face when he sees this.
Let me know what you think.
Thanks
Paul

Nice work… Think it would have looked better as a bow tie but my silverado may be making me biased lol.

I would look good on the dash of my Ford Ranger, even if they did put the steering wheel on the wrong side !
