The fever hit a peak and the result was 5 boxes of Padu wood.
Tried something different with a couple of these and dovetailed cross grain rather than end grain. Was not too difficult as long as a front board was used to prevent split out during the dovetail cutting. Once assembled, there seemed to be no difference in strength although with both pieces being cross grain, the dovetail is not as visually strong as with an end grain exposed.
Tried to make each unique by varying the lid design and played around with wood colors a bit.
As with all the others, wooden hinges and paste wax.
