Wow! A second place win in the Fluidity contest. Thank you all for the votes, support and kind words.
The concept of this design was to mimic blowing, shifting sand, wanting to convey a sense of movement.The shaping is intentionally softened, gently rolling one ridge into the next valley, and so on, for a natural feel.
I am very pleased with the effect. Thanks for looking and for any votes that come my way,
The body is Bubinga with a Myrtlewood medallion and handle,with Maple corner splines.
The dividers are Maple and Bloodwood.The finish is lacquer.
The bottom is lined with black velvet (the cloth…not the booze)
The dividers are removable.They fit together by wedging one into the next and some slip into slots. Like Lincoln Logs I guess. A little bit of thought goes into it,but pretty simple really. I draw it all out on paper first, to scale. A little hard to see, but I shaped the tops of the dividers into a wavy pattern to tie into the dunes theme.
Thanks again to everyone who followed the series and encouraged me along the way.Your support was overwhelming and much needed.This was a longer process than I anticipated, but it was enjoyable all the same.
I look forward to seeing your versions of this style of box :-)
