Wine Box Modification

This is a woodworking project I pieced together a few months ago. It is a wine box modified into a storage chest. The dimensions are 11"W x 13"D x 7.5"H. The bottom was reinforced with solid brass corners & the top with two brass "L" brackets. The padlock & hasp are really meant for decoration.

There are 4 individual trays (constructed from masonite & pine strips) to store my pastels, watercolor pencils, colored pencils, & watercolor paints. The inside bottom has enough storage space to hold 2 tins of pencils & a few other items.

The entire box and each tray was sealed with several coats of Minwax Wipe-On Satin Poly for protection.

I think the end results turned out pretty good considering I am an amateur woodworker.
