My 2nd Box-joint box. made for an Etrog, look at my previous project for further information.
Made as a present for my nephew, for his 13 birthday (“Bar Mitzvah”).
Sides are Maple & Mahogany, Lid is Cherry. no hinges this time. learned my lesson, i guess…
the Pop sound when you open the box is really satisfying. the friction is strong enough that box can be held from lid without falling down. made possible with carefully adjusting the lid edges on the table saw. there is a small chamfer at the top of the box making the opening easy.
I really love the gold ‘trail’ that the mahogany shows when light reflects on it (flash or direct sun rays). i still wonder if its in every mahogany or is it this specific piece i got.
Hebrew letters carving made with laser engraver machine, the same used to make rubber stamps (I don’t own one, i go to a store).
TBIII glue, Rustin oil finish.
Thanks for watching.
-- Only by the 4th time I realized how it was suppose to be done in the first place.
