I got this pattern out of A magazine called Creative Woodworks and Crafts. You can see their website at http://www.woodworksandcrafts.com/issues/2009/march/index.shtml. This particular pattern is out of the March 2009 issue. It's just one of those neat little items you can make in an afternoon when you really don't feel like starting on a new bigger project. I enjoy doing those from time to time.
The box top is made of cottonwood on a mahogany base. It holds two decks of cards and a set of dice. You could also leave out the inside spacers and use it for a trinket box. This is just one of the items you can buy at my Etsy shop, Wooden Memories athttp://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=6823431 .
