Display your treasures in style in this handsome glass-topped box.

Designer/Builder/Writer: Craig Bentzley

Box projects are perennial favorites with woodworkers. They’re a fun way to hone your skills, and there’s always a need for additional storage. While extra storage is appreciated, the treasures within are usually unseen. This good-looking tabletop showcase is different. Sporting a glass top and four interchangeable drawers, this case serves as a mini-museum. It offers up an ever-changing display that makes collections easy to see while keeping them secure.

In addition to showing off your favorite keepsakes, this box gives you an opportunity to display your woodworking skills. You’ll get a chance to try your hand at simple veneering, using rail-and-stile bits, installing full-mortise locks, cutting interlocking drawer dividers, and lining drawers. In the end, you’ll have an heirloom quality piece suited to any décor.

Note: For a list of the materials and supplies used to build this box, see the Convenience-Plus Buying Guide on page 61.
