I was commissioned to make this off of the dreaded Pinterest screenshot. The original was out of a cedar log, which I could not access locally so I had to make do with western red cedar 2×4 and a fence picket. It intrigued me to fashion the secret drawer, and it almost came out as planned. It kept staying with the case when the main drawer is removed, so I installed a small magnate and washer to keep it with the main drawer. Mid layout, I came up with the idea for the tray. After some thought, I decided the best plan of attack was to cut the tray out as if it were a shallow drawer and then “scoop” out the bottom of that compartment a little smaller than the tray to form a rest for the tray. Finish is Watco Danish Oil and three coats of Minwax Gloss Wipe-On Poly. Thanks for looking.
