Another box with some Asian flair based on the same design that I developed for this box .
It took a while to complete this box but a little time on the shelf never hurts in developing the look and I am quite please with the Asian or Japanese influence that I incorporated . It’s always interesting what different looks a box design can be turned into sharing the same basic texture pattern .
This box is made from hickory and walnut for the trim and lid ETC.
I used SOSS 12mm barrel hinges and a brass ball chain for the lid stop which folds nicely into the box beside the tray and the tray handle is another feature which I like as it gives a bit of a surprize when the lid is opened .
The size of the box is 10”W x6”D x4 3/4” H and finished with oil and bees wax polished to a light lustre using a brush on the grooved sections . The tray was a bit of fun to make a liner for as a poster board backing was way too stiff but my dear wife came up with a nice solution using a somewhat stiff fabric as a backing and sewing the deep brown liner to it and it fits very nice .
Comments and questions always welcome .
BTW: Another Christmas present of my list but I can’t name the recipient !
