Since there is a box building project going on and I couldn't fit it into my schedule this time, I thought I'd show everyone this just for kicks.
I forgot I had this until my wife brought it out. My SIL gave me this for my birthday, probably 15 years ago, maybe more. Probably made around 1930?
I don't think the inlay is ivory....probably celluloid. The wood might be mahogany. Anyway, when you lift up on the top....it doesn't actually come off....and let it back down, viola...a cigarette. The main reason I forgot I had this is I quit smoking almost 10 years ago.
As for building boxes, I'll plan on participating next time. Looking forward to seeing all the variety of boxes made.
