I started making this box out of boredom during my lunch break at work. It has been too cold to really sit and relax so it was easier to stay warm by just messing around in the shop. All of the wood was salvaged from the trash It is made using cherry for the case and the lid with strips of maple for splines and lid, i also used some type of black wood im not sure exactly what type it is my best guess is African blackwood. The bottom panel is made using mdf and some velvet fabric i had. I used wooden dowel to attach the lid. I finished it with a coat of danish oil and some dark wax, i also used some wax on the pegs to the lids move easier. This box is always fun for me to make and i am happy to have saved some beautiful pieces of scraps that would probably be rotting in a landfill somewhere.
