Im really liking the style the fun in shaping…. this is my second try at it .The case is made with american walnut and oak . It holds 500 pro clay poker chips . The case and drawers are dovetailed with a template =) . The case has a lock to secure the chips. The finish is hand rubbed poly .The coves are covered wth soft black leather.

forgot to add a picture with the to open =)

very nice job I love the way the drawers are hidden and the way you did the shallow groves on the whole box.

VERY NICE! Andy would be proud! What is really nice about this box is your choice of woods. Then it is how you put it together. It also seems you have gotten into the movement and design? As mentioned before nice combination and suprises with your choice of drawer design. I wonder what you could do with a larger box? Say a chest? Reminds me of some of James Krenov’s subtlties.

This is the coolest poker chip hollder I’ve ever seen. I really like the lines. Makes it elegant. I also like the diamond shaped inlay for the lock. Great job!

Fantastic design, wood, finish. The drawer handles are striking. My biggest complaint is that the chips and case aren’t mine!

. . . looks like quite a complicated box, Jim. Really nicely done!
