I was recently asked to make a Medal Box for a retired Australian Army serviceman to store his medals and his fathers medals. The father served with the legendary Gurkhas and the son in the Engineers in the Aussie army.
I had the emblems of both laser engraved in the curved lid along with their respective names.
The box is made from teak and finished with Scandanavian oil and then waxed. The inner tray is lined with a green pigskin suede.
I like the look of oiled teak and polished brass and this box has my simple hinge design using a 10 mm diameter polished brass rod. There is a picture with the lid removed that shows how the rod is attached to the lid.The box is assembled with 4mm Dominos.
