    Keepsake Box Re-visited

    After finishing the Keepsake Box ,kept thinking there should be more to it. Then in the middle of the night I got this idea for a couple of trays would add a nice touch to the box. Funny how all this stuff was in my head when I woke up this morning. So I started looking up some more material to make the trays with. I also put in a swing up handle in the top tray and a grab piece in the bottom tray that sits on the falsw bottom. I had to slope the one edge of the top tray so the top works as it did before.

    Every thing considered I think it was a good move,now it can be used either way and the Mahogany sets off the color nicely.
    If you make a mistake it was part of the original plan!

    Those are dandy additions to the box. Sure get to use every square inch of it now!!! Real estate is expensive, who ever gets that box will get to utilize all of the real estate that box offers. I think you did a great job brainstorming and completing the innards of that box!!

    That really rounds out the idea. Details make the difference. Very nicely done.
