Broad brushstrokes? Is that a clue?

Is it an old artists box that you’re converting into a watch box?

Wine box? (Trying to think of things you might have been gifted for your birthday)

Hmmmmm - or else you had a vintage box of wine stashed away for 30 years that you opened to celebrate your 60th birthday so you’re going to refit the box as a watch box. There - how’s that for a made up story? :lol:

brushstrokes was not intended as a clue. less "art" and more of a blue collar box. maybe a little higher end of blue collar.

Close enough to do the reveal (photo from Etsy, should get it later this week).

It’s a machinist’s chest.
