This was a present for my wife’s birthday. The timber is Birdseye Maple and the splines and hinges are Australian Red Cedar. The finish is Scandinavian Oil, friction sealed to 4000g. Final finish was wax (2 coats).
This box is taken directly form a book entitled ”Making Heirloom boxes”, by Peter Lloyd. His designs are simple and take full advatage of the beauty of the timber, doing little to interfere with the timber’s character. I have made several variations of patterns from this book.
