Behold, the mighty Games Chest! This is the most recent Thing I Made, and is now full of most of my board-games, dice and such-like.

The top is veneered in various woods — from centre outwards they're burr walnut, kahikatea, mahogany, kahikatea again, black walnut, and then more kahikatea. The little rectangular bits in the centre of each edge is silky oak I think, or possibly rewarewa — they look quite similar sometimes.

The framework is pink birch, and the panels are veneered in red oak.

The chest has a sliding till (the drawer-thing with the round tin in it) that slides from side to side on wooden runners. I'm keeping dice, pencils, erasers and what-not in there.
