Last week I finished a new box. I wanted to imitate a typical japanese funiture with frame and light paper panel.
So I used a heavy looking wood for a frame, I found some pieces of sipo/meranti/mahogany in my workshop. The panel should be very thin but stable, so I took 3mm (0.12”) MDF and laminated it with veneer. For a nice contrast between frame and panel, and for a good imitation of paper, I took Ash veneer with a fine texture. The panels are glued in a notch, the parts of the frame have gudeons, that are also use the notch for a bigger surface.
The cap is made the same way. The handle is cut with a band saw and sanded to the right shape. The cap has a rabbet to lie stable on the box.
The surface is coated twice with hard wax oil. The size of the box (without cap) is 20×20x20cm (7.9” x 7.9” x 7.9”).
I hope you like it, and I didn’t use too many wrong words. But google translater can’t find better ones.
