Hi All

I thought I would share a WIP of a commission I made last year. It was a currency box and was made to hold notes on one side and an inner lid is opened to reveal the coin section. The inside of the inner lid had an area to hold passport and credit cards. It was fitted with 2 locks for a partnership.

The box was made from walnut and the motif on the lid was from curly maple. Lined in green suede and fitted with good quality hardware.

The exterior was french polished.

2 locks won’t keep one of them from stealing the box.
Who cares about the money.


-- No piece is cut too short. It was meant for a smaller project.
