This is a little tradition I do for when a gift card just won’t do. A little frustrating for them, a little fun for me. My nephew can unscrew 36 screws only to find six more. Or he might get lucky and find the magnetic false bottom. Made from padauk, walnut, maple, red oak and poplar. Wax finish

This looks loke a ideal gift for the woodworker. I think you will get dirty looks from the recipient. Great idea.

That is sneaky. Does he belong to Lumberjocks to uncover the secret?
