    Show off your home-made watch box

    I'm thinking about making my own watch box so I've started looking at other home-made watch boxes. I searched around and I don't see a depository of home-made watch boxes for reference. And so, I thought I'd encourage everyone who has made (or seen) a home-made watch box to post it here and share.

    Also, if anyone is in the process of making (or will soon make) a watch box, I'd invite you to post pics and progress reports here. I plan to make a watch box and will post pics here with my successes and failures.

    I look forward to your entries.

    Also, I did a quick search on Youtube and found these interesting videos:

    This guy is making a watch/yoyo box - seems to be code for a watch to house a G-shock collection:

    HOW TO MAKE A WATCH BOX (OR YOYO BOX)

    This girl came up with a clever way to re-task an aluminum box:

    This guy is a straight professional and I'd love to own this watch box:

    And this guy is a truly talented amateur; I'd love to own this one also:

    Wife: Don't you have enough watches?
    Me: Don't you have enough earrings?
    Wife: So, you're saying that watches are jewelry for Men?
    Me: That's exactly what I'm saying.
    Wife: Let's go shopping.

    And that's how I got my last watch...

    That's really cool. I was thinking along this line of using old ammo or military boxes given I am into mil watches in general. Is that glass or perspex you used?

    Back in the 70's-80's you could get two wine bottles in a wooden box with a sliding wooden door as a gift set. I had one to keep post cards in as a kid. Maybe even a large cigar box (if they still make those).

    I think the still do this for some wines, mostly the more premium and champagne, which is probably enough for my small collection for the moment...

    OK, coming at you. Standard wooden frame with interlocked UHMW plastic crosspieces I had left over from another project. I cut a flat front on standard pool noodles for the actual watch holders.

    Very nice. Do you have a lid or are you considering one? Wood frame and a pane of glass or maybe some Plexiglass on hinges?

    It goes in a drawer. I considered a lid but it didn't seem to be solving any problems.

    I wouldn't exactly call it totally home-made, but i picked up the box from a local TJ Maxx for $12, added dividers and my wife sewed the pillows.

    That's what I'm talking about! - something easy, cheap, functional and still good looking
