My wife makes and collects Rosary’s from all over the world. She has some passed down from generations and when friends travel and they send them to her from everywhere.

She needed a box to keep them in so I got some ambrosia maple and some walnut and made her this box. Was my first time using a planer. I love that I was able to continue the grain on the ambrosia drawers between the drawers. Even the drawer slides are maple.

As you can see, it’s almost time for another one. Loved making this for my wife.

@woodchuckerNJ Thanks for the comment.
I would love to be able to flip the pictures but don’t know how. I’ve rotated and re-saved them before I upload them and they still show up sideways on the site.

Do you (or anyone) know how to rotate the pictures once they have been uploaded?

Welcome aboard John! I had to see what a Rosary Box was – got my attention. I don’t know anyone who collects them but now I know what to build them! Nicely done!
