I remember when I was a kid, my mom gave me a compartmented wooden wine box for me to put my treasures in, and fill it I did.

Now I want to design a compartmented box where a kid could store his baseball cards, cash, marbles, bottlecaps, and maybe a stolen cigarette or two:) I invision a box that could lock, and be easily stored under a bed. A chest seems a trifle big but something boxlike is what I am looking for.

I been through lumberjocks chests and boxes and I am going to borrow a few concepts here and there. Hopefully a person reading this, has built something like this before and say to themselves, Richard might like this design.

I had an old shoe box it worker perfect for hidding love notes pics of friends, and ciggerates lol. I would make one the size of a shoe box i wouldn’t get to caught in compartments maybe just three I was not that organized as a kid heck still aint. By the way I still got the shoe box its kinda fun to go back and remininse.
