I made this B/S box for my show earlier this month. I had seen one similar and liked the idea. The center is maple and I thought the front and back were also, but I’m not sure. It seems a little darker. Handles are blood wood. I flocked the drawers with a wine color. First time doing that and found out I need to use a smaller brush for the glue next time. The size is about 14” tall, 10” wide and 4” thick. Thanks for looking.

Very nice! Those BS boxes are as addictive as other boxes. I REALLY need to make something useful someday (but where’s the fun in that?)

@ Monte The show went well for me. We had a snow storm, but people still braved the weather to come to it. It was the best show I have ever had!

@ gfadvm From looking at your projects, I’d say what you make is very useful.

Really cool project/idea. Where was your show, if I can ask, and how much snow did you get? Thanks for sharing.

@TZH The show was in Minot, ND. We got about 6-8 inches but we had freezing rain before it hit so the roads were very icey. Vehicles were sliding all over the place in town and on the highway. Thanks for asking!

Thanks Surfside.
