I’ve finally finished that toublesome box which you can view in another of my box project pages. (Scroll to the very bottom of the project page and you will see new pictures of the box that gave me so much trouble.)
So now I’m back into box making. Here’s one that I whipped up yesterday & today.
The primary timber is Australian Rosewood. The aroma of the wood reminds me of aromatic cedar. It’s a fairly soft wood and quite light. The wood was planned down to 10mm thickness which adds to the delicate feel of this box.
The top panel is an Amboyna Burl veneer. I’ve used this in a number of boxes. I make up these small panels by veneering to both sides of 3mm MDF for stability.
I used small rare earth magnets as lid hold-downs. The hinges are my own design and relatively easy to make.
