Here’s a box I made utilising a quite stunning piece of African Padauk,the black line running through the center makes me drool every time I see it.The main carcase is made from Sycamore with very mild spalting,not enough to give black lines but enough to cause some staining.I added the Blackwood to tie the Sycamore & Padauk together as I felt it needed a little extra something…
The hingepin is 3mm sterling silver wire & there is some of the lovely orangy-brown leather I normaly use for my backdrop lining the bottom.
