My gifts for many nieces who got married, are long over due, I had planned to give them something hand made by me – not only to make it personal and custom built but they all got married when my chips were down, hence I started making these miniature Pettagamas (legged treasure boxes), I posses a real one my grand father made, to store his shotgun rounds, I hope these kids will have these boxes filled with gold.
PS – Also please note the dates in the pictures,This is my latest project to keep me and my assistant occupied,the gap is because I went on a fishing camp during the long weekend (3days)
Timber used – African Mahogany – (not real Mahogany, Called Suriya Mara in Sri Lanka) & Teak beadings, skirtings & legs.
I will send pictures of the finished product tomorrow,if the weather permits finishing.
Yes, This is what the finished product looks like!!
