Here is a short story regarding the making of this box.
Timber & Origin.
Australian Red Cedar, from Northern NSW weighing in at 22 kilos.
This grain feature became the design focus. The block size was reduced to achieve a harmonious size, revealing (the main drawer) -
To accentuate this grain feature Whittle Waxes Wood Filler was used to fill the deep voids. See the raw wood image of the main drawer.
A three drawer bandsawn box. The first drawer has a shelf & space dividers. The second is an open compartment.
The third drawer has four compartments, three compartments are hidden. The first compartment is open, with a slide tray.
On removing the drawer access to two hidden compartments, secured by Velcro strips, is achieved by lifting the wings.
The fourth compartment is revealed by upturning the drawer. The hidden compartment is retained in place by magnets.
Access to each drawer is provided by carved handle designed to accentuate the beauty of the timber.
The timber was hand sanded through the grades to 2000 grit; bathed in Tung Oil, finished with Ubeaut’s EEE Polish.
