Sadly I have not had much time in my shop in the past few months but I did manage to fulfill one Christmas wish. This is a obviously medicine box intended to hold 5, 7 day locking pill boxes. I like to try to make most of the things that i make multi-functional and this one is no exception. The dividers are held in a groove using Velco. This allows them to be removed if desired. This box is made of Jabota and Chechen, with birch splines and Southern yellow Pine bottom.
As always thanks for taking the time to look.
Comments always appreciated!!!!

Merry Christmas all fellow LJ’s

Jeff, I like the concept. This is a neat and clean design. Though the clasp is nicely installed, I think it detracts from the look. Magnets would hold it closed if that is needed. You might think of a finger lift like this or this.

I have a container storer too, but I prefer no dividers and a stacking design for the containers. It gives me a smaller footprint and is easier to remove from the box.

Nice, straight ahead box. I like it. I agree with Al that a box this nicely made would benefit from a hardware upgrade. Hope you will be making more boxes. You’re obviously pretty good at it.

Very nice! Great concept and something I could have made for my Mom when she was still with us. If I did, unfortunately, I would have had to add a locking hasp. This will make a great gift idea! Thanks for sharing!

Hardware Upgrades are Definitely in the future!!!! My preferred version of this is using a internal lock with a keyhole decorated with a Veneer diamond with ring. But time and customer budget, and request resulted in this clasp. I really need to find a better source for hardware for these cases.
Thanks for your feedback
