This is a men’s valet box, can be used as a ladies jewelry box but I had the man in mind when making it, the woods used in this box are Native Texas Cedar Elm and Nogal, the base or inner part of the box is Alder, it’s a bandsaw box and miter joint box combo, I call it my Hybrid, The lid, pulls, splines, bottom of large tray and the hinges are Nogal.
It offers two lift out trays one small and one large, two large drawers, a hidden drawer and a large hidden compartment under a false bottom door, the small tray is the key to opening the false bottom door by way of magnets, if you notice in the pictures a small notch cut in the center top of the back wall, that is for a phone charging cord to lay in with the lid fully closed, the hidden compartment measures 7″ × 5 3/4″ × 2″ and can house all pocket sized pistols and most compact size pistols the wooden pistol shown below is in the exact image as my 9mm Smith & Wesson Shield.
This box measures 13″ × 9″ × 9″, finished in a single coat of tung oil, two coats of my on mix wipe on poly (satin) and a final wipe of paste wax.
Thanks for viewing.
