This is a more compact version remote control storage box I posted previously .
I used Jatoba and Maple scraps for this one .
It has a soft liner in the bottom and is finished with three coats of Minwax satin Poly.
We find it very easy to use as the lid can be lifted from either end and the remotes can be removed easily without having to take of the lid. .
Now we have one for up and downstairs .

I love the uniqueness of your designs, and of course, the execution is flawless. Well done, Klaus!

Beautiful work and design.
Too beautiful for remotes (i.m.h.o.) but you elevated them to some kind of treasure.
Great work. I like that this design seems like it would scale up to a large piece too.

Nice work on the remote box Kiefer!
I like the design you choose; nice contrasting woods also! Now you’ll know right where it is when it’s TV time.

Klaus, nice box. I keep noticing little details that make it yours. The base caps on the legs are an interesting touch.
The Jatoba and maple play well together, as well. It has a soft Asian vibe that I like.

Great looking design K... however, if you keep making smaller boxes, you’ll need a box for all the boxes. Sometimes boxes are harder to keep track of than remotes.

Very clean and nice design, great contrasting woods. Looks like a Japanese style box with the corner joints.

Purity Nice! You have a very good eye for when it comes to woods that complaiment each other:)

I like the design Klaus and it will compliment the setting nicely. Much better than my remote sitting behind the lamp most of the time.

Definitely has the Asian feel, semi pagoda style.

I like your change so the lid can hook onto the end, avoiding the need to fully lift it off to access. Small details…!

(Good place to stash a share set of batteries as well 8^)
