Another one of my tissue boxes with a place to hide a few small things. It also has my special safety latch so the cover won’t separate from the base accidentally.

We don’t have any children living with us so I can keep a small fire arm in the box if I choose. If you have children your weapon should be secured in a safe.

The box is made of cherry with walnut splines. This is a video of how the latch works.

Very cool. What did you use for (or where did you find) the spring loaded pin?
