Time ago visiting a friend, I saw a sewing box pleased me by his lines, I was struck by the way and thought it would be good to try to copy it someday. Some time ago I set to work because I needed exactly something like this for my home.
The big complication was that the model I saw had cut bandsaw the walls to shape it. I saw no such so it occurred to me to make a laminate system thus cutting into my scroll saw.
I made a little design measures in the pc and finally defined where to cut and how to separate the parties to make it as simple as possible. So did three parties that would make the body and the drawer, then two parts that would be a lower and an upper.
Cut after all, join the parts, sandpaper to resolve imperfections, and end gluing with lids. Caps previously did some work with the router to give better presentation.
In this case also use the transfer system which leads to a breakdown at the top, and seal construction that goes on the bottom of the drawer.
The lumber is cedar. Finished with varnish spray
I hope you like it and if someone wants to design the plane I can send it by mail.
Greetings to all!

Congratulations, it’s very beautiful!

I was surprised when I realized it opens with a drawer, I thought it was going to be opened from the top lid.

I’m about to make one (a square one) and now you changed my original idea. Let’s see how it ends up (if I finish it anyway)

A very clever thought out design, well constructed and finished.
The opening aspect will surely keep out the “fiddle Fingers”
Very well done.
