This tissue box is made with Curly Maple and Walnut and is similar to the last box I made. The tray under the 1/2 box of tissues leaves a little space to hide some small things if you use a 1/2 box of tissues in it. If you leave the tray out a larger box of tissues will fit.
I kept the walnut splines straight unlike the last box I made. People said the splines cut on an angle looked crooked and not done intentionally; I agree straight splines look much better.
I used a piano hing to attach the cover and finished the box using spray on lacquer.
Thanks for looking!

Beautiful box. Love that hidden storage feature. Love the wood choices and joinery. Interesting with the hinge – how you did that feature. Nice!

It was nice getting some shop time in; it’s been really hot here in the south this summer. Way too hot to stay in the Shop/Garage before fermentation set in. LOL!

Thanks, Lee, Joe, Jim, Art Gary, Jerry, Eric, Tom and Pottz.
Pottz, I hope that pest Ted has left the building.

Yup pretty stupid posting the same thing over and over again. He’s just wasting his time and revealing himself as a Spammer. Hope he took a hike forever!

yeah hopefully cricket and her team can figure a way to stop the spammers.maybe make it so a new member must make a certain amount of posts and cant go more until cricket approves them.that way a robo cant just make hundreds of spam posts.i dont envy her problem.

That is really beautiful Tony, I love the contrast between the woods. Great job.
