This is a lidded bandsaw box in the form of Italy which I recently completed to be used as a gift which will be drawn at a Christmas party for a group of people who are studying the Italian Language and customs.
This box is somewhat unique because it also includes the island of Sicily,and a lot of detail on the shoreline and borders.
The box is made of alder and is a glue-up of 3 layers of 3/4” wood. It is finished with Shellac and top coated with gloss lacquer. After final rub-out I applied some paste wax.
The overal length is about 11 inches.
In the second picture, I have included a picture of a similar box made in the shape of the state of Texas.
The third picture shows the boxes with their lids removed. There is not a lot of storage space, but they can be used for small items or candy.
