    I wanted a box for my smoking pipes so I came up with this one . I enjoy making boxes compared to other projects I do . This one is made from walnut and some maple burl slices in the top . The box measures 9 3/4″ long x 6 3/4″ wide and 5 5/8″ deep . I made it to fit my little collection , the bottom is where I store tobaccos and pipe cleaning stuff . The tray is for my pipes and lighter/ tamper and such . I used flocking to dress up the inside and french fit everything in the tray , also did a piston fit on the tray . The lid is a simple sliding type . For the finish I used danish oil and topped it with a coat or two of Bri Wax .

    Here’s a short video of the tray , it never gets old watching that thing float down . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6MPkjKIg6k

    That’s a nice Boxx you made there. What did you finish it with?

    Very nice (and useful) box JerrySats. That burl top is outstanding.

    Beautiful work, Jerry. Very subtle combination of the walnut and maple burl, they are just outstanding together. Oil and wax makes a perfect finish.

    Duct tape can't fix stupid, but it muffles the sound.

    Looks good Jerry! I like the lid with all of the miters!

    How did you join the sides of the box? Just miters and glue?

    Thanks , it doesn’t get old watching it float down . Yes it’s a powdered felt , they call it flocking . You use a color matching glue and blow the flocking on with a tube . Pretty messy job that’s for sure .

    Yes just miters and glue , the bottom sits in a dado and I fold it up . Sometimes I’ll do splines but didn’t want that look in this box .

    Thanks everyone for the kind words . The oil and wax finish is one of my favorites , it just feels good in hand .

    I thought it might be flocking felt with so many tight contours it makes sense. I’ve never seen it in charcoal color though but I see that LV now carries it in multiple colors now versus the standard green or red. Looks nice.

    This is black but your right it comes it so many different colors now . My local woodcraft stores has about 6 different colors but there’s a list of all the choices in the directions and there must be 20 or 30 colors .

    Do you use your wooden pipe on the jobsite? Seems like it would get sawdust all up in it among other things.

    Very nicely done. I also like the way that grain is wrapped around the box.

    If the shop is considered the job site then yes . I don’t smoke it a lot just when I need to relax and ponder on things .

    Thankyou , that’s one of my favorite things to do when I can . It sure makes for a cool look even if nobody else notices it .
