Wood too thin?....No problem. So, a woodworking buddy gave me two pieces of very thin….about 1/16 inch thick…. figured maple. I tucked it away, hoping that I might find a use for them….maybe as veneer on a project. I have always liked Asian influence pieces, and I thought that I could use it as the screening material in a shoji screen-look box. The framework is 1/4 by 3/8 inch walnut glued to the maple sheeting. The corner joints are a rabbet joint, and the bottom is set into a quarter inch dado. The lift-off lid is built in the same fashion with a 1/4 inch slab of walnut nesting into the interior of the box.
The box is 8 inches by 5 inches and 3 inches tall. Small walnut feet give the box a lighter feel.
Finished in hand-rubbed satin poly.
