Tissue Box with Secret Space

Tissue Box Made with Curly Maple and Mahogany. A locking pin system keeps the cover from being removed accidentally. See how the locking pin works >here<
The finish is spray on Lacquer.
Hope you like it!

Update;
I added two more spring pins to this box to make the movement to open it a little stiffer or Harder to open. This helps in having it accidental opening if someone were to pick the box up to admire it. This worked so well I added more spring pins to my other boxes.

WOW Tony, That is another beauty.
Great job and an excellent locking pin system.

Thanks for sharing.

Bob.

Another great creation ’shaver.

Are you paranoid about nose protection? Might be cheaper to consult a NE&TS (Nose, Ear & Throat Specialist).

I hope you realise,

there may be a few nefarious LJ members than now know your secret… apologies to all you petty thiefs.

Thank you Bob,
I got away from using foam and went with wood lined with felt instead. I think it looks much better. No matter how I cut the foam rubber it looked shabby!

Thank you Joe ”Just like the Auto industry a new model every year” LOL Joe I think your on to something! I retired from GM 18 years ago!

Thank you Tony
I need to take some time out now and fix the motor armature on my saw it’s eating up brushes like a hungry dog.

Thank you Ivan
I’m always trying to come up with a better way and now I’m thinking about coming up with an Easier Way; and I’m still thinking! hehehe!

Thank you LBD

That is a really nice tissue holder and the hidden compartment makes it extra special. I hope you never have to use it, but it is best to be prepared. It is a different world out there from when we grew up.

Cheers, Jim

Tony, beautiful work and the hidden area with a lock is awesome.
