As inspired by Steve - Mere Mortals...

I’ve had two pieces of 1/8” scrap Curly Maple & Zebra Wood kicking around my shop for years!
This seemed like a good way to use them… so I made two…
Steve glued his up very quickly & simply… mine, being 1/8” stock was harder to glue-up… but, I made it.

My wife liked the Zebra Wood one… I got the Curly Maple… (big grin)

Here are four pictures of them…

Steve, thank you for posting your Video on this project… It was fun!

These look great Joe. If I every have any extra money to hide, I might want to try out your clever secret compartment idea. I’m not holding my breath until that happens,lol.

Please don’t keep you valuables in them Joe, if someone breaks into your home, even if they don’t know about the secret bottom, they’ll steel the boxes anyway because they look so good.

fun project. Will need to make some of these myself someday. My youngest daughter is a middle-school physics teacher and she would like one of these on her desk.

Another Great project, I built a pencil box a few days ago. It’s in my project list, it doesn’t have a secret compartment, I tried to keep it really simple. I made my out of 1/2 plywood scraps.
