Default My One Drawer Box

Hello Everyone
I was able to get some more time in the shop over the last week and made this One Drawer box. The pattern is from Box-Making Projecs for the Scrol Saw. by Gary MacKay. I made it form the Red Oak and Lepard Wood I ahd left over from my bowl project. I have some mixed feeling about this project. I like the way it looks, the woods work well together, it a good size and it will hold the watch Evelyn is giving me for Farther's Day very nicely , the lines are nice and I was able to get the drawer opening and drawer right on the money evening spacing all around. I'm not happy that I put the handle on the wrong side of the drawer so the grain on the front does not flow as well as it should and I made a mistake when I built the drawer One piece should have been 1/2" stock so I ahd to trim on end down and I did it on the wrong end. I should have waited untill I was not as tired.
I was thinking about using spray flocking in the insde of the drawer but I not sure now. Should I cover up the nice looking wood or leave it as it is.
As always any and all comments are welcome.

I'd leave it without the flocking. That is great looking wood and you did a great job. You already know about the watch?

Thanks Mike, DW and Trout for the nice comments. Yes Mike I already know about the watch but I can have it untill Farther's Day. Evelyn thinks I should leave it unflocked as well.

Nice job, Dan, and should be a great way to store your new watch.

No one but you will notice the lack of continuity of the grain, but it will probably bother you every time you look at it. We're always far more critical of our own work than anyone else.

On of my problems with McKay's book is that you need 3/4", 1/2" and 1/4" wood. If you don't re-saw your own wood, this can be a nuisance to get, and somewhat expensive. Since the 1/2" wood is used only for the back of the drawer, and since the drawers are not high, you can use a piece of 3/4" wood instead, and slice off 1/4" before you cut out the guts. Then you just glue up the pieces, using the piece you cut off for the back. The only difference is that it will have a small entry hole, but no one will see it, and often you can sand it away. If getting different thicknesses of wood is no problem, then his instructions work just fine.

And if your watch is anywhere as nice as the box, it should be a beaut!

Thanks Carole for for your comments. Youe right about being more critical about our work. I put the watch in the box to see how it would look and that was all it took, there will be no flocking. Here is what the watch looks like in the box. Ok I'm showing off the watch too but dont tell anyone.

Sweeeeet box Dan, nice choice in the watch Evelyn, but now for my only question. Why don't you want to wear the watch?
