Locking Handmade Maple Wood Box with Plain Sliced Wenge Wood Handle and Corner Splines.
Everyone has a different use for this Multi-Purpose Box. The Lift Out Tray and Adjustable/Removable Dividers make this box a Valet Box, Keepsake Box, Trinket Box, Jewelry Box.
THIS MAY BE ONE OF MY LAST BOXES I'LL MAKE FOR A WHILE BECAUSE OF A ACCIDENT.

I really love these two Woods together. So much so that I made two of them. They really compliment each other. The Maple has some really nice grain and the Wenge Wood Lid is beautiful and the pictures do in NO Justice. This is definitely a box that needs to be seen in person to see the real color and beauty.
I also made the Handle and Corner Splines out of Wenge Wood for both Beauty and Strength.
I through a few items in the box in the last picture to give you an idea of the size of the box.
As you can see this Large Beautiful Box is not something you need to hide. It could be used to hide those annoying bills out of sight. Or a place to put things you use daily like your phone, keys, wallet, etc. It's a multipurpose box. Solid Wood and built to last. It also makes the Perfect Gift.

It's a Handcrafted Piece of Art that can serve Many Purposes for Generations.
- A Mortised Key Lock. It has a attractive Polished Brass Escutcheon Plate and Skeleton Key.
Built to Last.. I used Plywood splines to attach the top of the Lid to the Sides, Front and Back. I dado the bottom and glue it in. I use Titebond ll Alphatic Resin to glue up this box. I give both sides of EVERY piece and joint a coat of this glue. The Alphatic Resin is Stronger than the wood. Built to last many, many years.
- The Polished Brass Quadrant Hinges hold the lid open at a approx 95 Degree angle.
Inside there is a Lift Out Tray. This is a new design. I made the handle swivel up and down, out of the way to give more space for larger items without a handle in the way.
- Below the Tray is a large section that is 10” Long, 7” Wide and 2” high. It comes with 2 dividers for the lower section. I made the dividers snug, but Removable. This makes this box a 'Multipurpose' Box. Not everyone's 'Treasures' are the same size, but with the adjustable or removable dividers this does give the user many options. A legal size envelope is 9 1/2” long so it does make a good 'Secretary Box'. In a hundred years from now who knows what it'll be used for.
- The Box Measures 11 1/2” Long, 8 5/8” Wide and 4 5/8” Tall. Large enough to hold many treasures or a large something of value, but small enough to find room for on any shelve, counter, table, etc. Display it with pride.
- I used a few coats of Kelly Moore's Semi-Gloss Precatalyzed Clear Lacquer on the outside and inside. I sand lightly with 220 grit between coats for a smooth finish.
This box would be a great gift for the person that has everything. I'm sure that the person that received this gift would think of you every time they used or looked at the box.
I signed and dated this box on the bottom.
