This was a Christmas present for one of my boys. Saw it in one of the woodworking mags. a while back. Red oak and walnut. It breaks down to 4 pieces. The base and top capture the two trays holding the chips so the whole thing doesn’t have to go to the table. Bought the chips on sale after Christmas the year before for about 15% of the regular price (85% off). How’s that for planning ahead !! Good thing, too, ‘cause the rest of the hardware cost a lot.

Very nice job. Are the chips in squared out troughs or are they rounded out underneath?

chip compartments are rounded and felt lined. It was a lot of fun and had it’s own challenges.

Nice Job! I’ll be favoriting this one and probably “steeling” it later (with your permission of course)
