Another present made this time a box to keep some stamps in as well as a place for things like tweezers in the top tray. The lid is held in place by the top tray as I wanted the bottom to be quite shallow to make it easier to get the stamps out of the divisions.
Made from an old shelf unit of mahogany.
Top tray bottom is cherry veneer stuck together like ply as I did not have anything thin enough for that well I did have some modelling ply but it was dirty.
The dividers are American Black walnut which were offcuts from a local cabinet makers shop.
The lid liner which I put in is from a book of swatches from a local shop they were throwing away and is ideal for this purpose as I included it for somewhere to place the stamps while sorting them out.
The top of the lid is Ash. all of the wood is either recycled or straight from a tree and re-sawn and dried by myself.

It measures !0 1/4" X 7 3/4" X 1 3/4"

OK call me cheap skate if you like but 99% of the wood I have is from recycling or given to me as trunks. This did take a little while to complete as I spent time preparing wood to the correct dimensions.dscf0712 (800x566).jpgdscf0714 (800x565).jpg
