Refillable Tissue Box with a hidden space.

I was searching for another idea for a different look on my tissue box’s and after seeing kdc68 box he gave me an idea for this box.

My box is made using Curly Maple and Walnut. The splines are walnut and the center splines are set at a 10 degree for a little different detalil. It’s a little different from the one kdc68 made; I think I like his better!

There are two magnets one on the tray and one on the inside of the box and they hold the tray firm to the front of the box. To remove the tray you must push the tray to the back of the box and then it cam be lifted out.

The hinges are just walnut dowels. For now they are temporary I need to make two new ones. I had to remove the top after I installed it and to get the top off I had to drill a hole in the dowels and drive a small screw in the dowel in order to pull it out like a nail; luckily they weren’t glued in.

OK, if I understand this…

The tray is held solidly in place by the magnets in front.

By pushing the back of the tray, it tilts the tray front AWAY from the magnets where you can remove it.

Is this it?

If so, you have to have room for the tray to drop in back… and swivel screws/rods on the sides to make the swivel point for the tray.

Is this correct?

If not, what is? :)

LOOKS REALLY COOL! Again! :)

Very nice box, Tony. Do you tilt the blade for the splines?

Cheers, Jim

Thanks Jim,
Yes I set the blade at 10* degrees. I must say I got that idea from an earlier post from kdc68. I liked the way his box looked but I didn’t want to make an exact match to his so I only made a few 10 degree splines. My neighbor said … Tony your splines are not straight. LOL!

Another great addition to the tissue brigade… Your innovations seem endless.

However, with all the tissues, you may need to make an appointment with a otolaryngologists.

Thanks LBD, I’m running out of ideas. Maybe a tissue box that does the shooting for you!
Those nice soft tissue are just there for when someone needs to be blown away! But I’m not saying there is nothing wrong with my head! I’m just as nutty as the next nut.

Tony that box stands up by itself as a very nice box. Add the gun hide and it’s a winner.

Nice job.

Thanks Dick,
The maple I used has been kicking around my shop for over 8 years. I didn’t know some of it was Curly Maple.

Thanks StevenN,
I’m always trying to think up something unique to make. Sometimes it’s not easy!

Thanks Grumpy
Most of my work is trial and error. I never draw out a plan on paper I just think it and go for it.

Thanks pottz,
The gun is for me and the lead is for the other guy! The tissues are an offering if they live! “I’m braking into a smile now”

Thanks Ivan,
whoops! hit the wrong key!
I learned that lots of people like hidden spaces, secret doors and magic boxes, I’m one of those people! I like to see the crazy hiding places people think up and make. It’s fascinating to me.
