Completed some more valet type boxes, these are for wife’s brother-in-laws. I’m lucky & married into a great family. So now to work on boxes for my wife’s sisters.
Choose all walnut wood for these boxes with maple pulls… suppose to be more “manly”?
Size about 10” x 4 1/2” x 4 1/2”, 4 coats of Arm R Seal – I love that stuff.
Thanks for looking.

I love the idea of the top tray. Great bedside box for keys, loose change, etc.

Those are really great looking, perfect choice on the walnut with maple handles. I’m sure the guys will love it. Great job!
