    Made with walnut, curly maple and padauk for the splines. The box has a false bottom and the compartment slides out to the side. The compartment release key is a section of the curly maple liner. It’s pulled up, flipped around and pushed back in to compress the wooden spring and release the compartment. The inside of the secret compartment was finished with suede flock. The lid had a hole from a knot and was filled with epoxy.

                                            I missed when you installed the spring to make the hidden box jump out when it was unlocked. Ahh, there it is @ 4:11.

Second the same as before. Respect the mans ability to use his tools. The only people who lose a finger are those without the focus or perhaps ignorant tool owners like yourself maybe? I glanced and mistook what tool you were ignorant about my bad. I saw "push sticks" and your arrogant comment at the end and thats all I needed to know what kind of person this was.

                                                                      • Christian O.

You are clearly ignorant as you seem to not notice the most important safety feature which he uses. The riving knife behind the saw blade prevents all the relevant kickback safety concerns that could cause him to suffer an injury and possible lose a finger. Simply looking at this mans attention to detail has me fulling confident in his ability to use his tool and concentrate on what hes doing.

I have many skills, but they are from two other trades. I can make it out of steel. I can duplicate any automotive finish on it. I can even make one out of stone.
