I got tired of having a line of prescription bottle take a tumble while reaching for the tall ones in the back on my desk. So I made a corral for the spot. Cherry and ribbon Sapele, with home-made inlay-banding (bloodwood, holly, cherry). Padded on shellac.
The dividers are made with the most excellent home-made kerfmaker, (mine made after Mafe’s contribution to the forum) All friction fit without glue.
Unfinished QS White Oak, Cherry and one lonely bit of Walnut that was the right thickness. To be truthful, I might have used Danish on them but when I tested the fit it snapped in so tight I decided to just leave well enough alone, which is rarely how I operate…

Very nice, sir. But I think making one of these is a sure sign of advancing age. :-)

I’m on the downhill slope, with a garage full of tools and lumber. Try and stop me!

The inlay really gives this extra eye appeal. Can’t go wrong with cherry. Beautiful wood and well crafted!

You certainly have more than a few decorative tricks up your sleeve kdc68. I watch your projects with great interest.

That is very attractive with both the joinery and the inlay. Well done.

Looks good, I like the idea. Nice job with the divider having a snug fit, the inlay really sets off the box. Great job
