This a sewing box that we use in our RV when we travel. I built five of these for family members as gifts. The plans came from Woodsmith magazine a few years ago. The protype took several days to complete, but once that one was made the others went a lot faster. The most critical part is the placement of the arms that support the trays. The prototype was made from Pine (too soft and too hard to stain) and another from Oak (too hard and spinters badly on the box joints) and three were made from ash, which worked very well. A fun project.
"I live in NJ, and wish there was a physical store near where I live. My experience with rockler.com is second to none. Not only are your products first rate, but customer service/product support is exceptional. I've called several times, and never received someone on the other end of the phone who was anything but extremely helpful, patient, and friendly. The biggest compliment I can give is that I TRUST Rockler for all my woodworking needs. The only other store I can say that about is LL Bean. My wood working friends in western NJ love Rockler. Keep on keepin' on - and get a store here in Jersey!!" -
