Walnut valet box I made for one of my wife’s coworkers. The sides are one continuous piece of Walnut so the grain wraps around, the corners are mitered with Maple splines. I added two Walnut runners inside for the removable tray to slide on and then lined the bottom of the box and tray with blue felt. It was finished with 4 coats of gloss polyurethane sprayed with an airbrush and lightly sanded between each coat. Thanks for looking

Great looking valet box! That walnut really looks nice, and I’m sure the co-worker will really appreciate it!
