I made this box last fall for a Christmas gift. I wanted a beach-theme for the project, and chose a shell textured top based off a project I saw on Chris Wong’s web site.
I rough cut the box from a bowl turning blank of bubinga on the bandsaw. After slicing the lid off, I used rasps and sandpaper to shape the sea shell pattern. I used small Brusso hinges and added some ribbed bronze clavos on the back ridge for decoration. I finished the box with five coats of original waterlox and then flocked the inside with black polyester flocking.
