I love the Art Deco style so yesterday I got to work and made a box in the deco style for my wifes birthday .
I made a similar box some time ago and this one came together much easier but of course there had to be some new design elements like the lid lift and the polished nickle hing covers for the leather hinges .
I like how this box tuned out without exception ,the lid closes to perfection as the round lift engages itself into the banding and the leather hinges also work very well with no play when the lid is open or closed .
The laminated banding acts as a lid stop at about 95 DEG opening.
The interior is red velvet cloth with a tray lift that I designed just for this and has a special meaning for the two of us .
Made from jatoba ,black walnut and white aspen .
The size is 11 3/4” W x6 1/2” D x 4” H .
The finish so far is one coat oil and beeswax with more to come .
