Default Watch storage box in Australian timbers

I have made what is essentially a compartmentalized storage box. It's intended use is to hold a watch collection, though it could be used for any collection of individual pieces. The box is 600 mm long x 280 mm wide x 90 mm tall (and 107 mm with the lid)

The carcass is made from Red Gum, showing considerable figure. The dividers are of QLD Maple again showing beautiful figure. The lid consists of a fiddle back Tasmanian Blackwood border and a book matched Tasmanian Myrtle panel.

The finish is Organoil Hard Burnishing Oil. Each compartment is approximately 120 mm x 110 mm x 90 mm. The compartments shall be fitted with Black Leatherette pillows (100 mm square).
