Recently I decided to make a custom veneer box with some new to me learning techniques. This box is made out of Baltic Birch plywood for the sub straights and has a book matched marbled Chen Chen veneer exterior with solid wood Ebony edging/corners. It has a book matched Tiger Maple interior with solid brass Brusso Quadrant hinges and a solid brass mortise lock with key. I custom made the escutcheon for the lock out of brass. The finish is 5 coats of semi gloss spray lacquer with a buffed wax top coat.
The first 5 pictures make the box look a little light in color but the last picture really shows the true color of the finished project and the hidden texture of the wood.
