This is my take on my grandfather’s sewing basket. Made of sycamore with lacewood dowels.

Edit: this website keeps rotating my pictures after I upload them. Sorry everyone.

I agree. I tried to upload them about 20 times and it always rotated them this way. Frustrating.

Best guess is that you were doing it from an iPhone. That seems to be the source of a lot of similar problems.

Nope, from my PC. I tried uploading copies of them rotated in all 4 orientations, and it always flipped them to what you see now. :(

Very unique and interesting. I like it. I never would have guessed sycamore looked so good. It makes me wonder how it would ammonia fume. BLO finish?

I will be the first to admit that this site sucks for photo uploading(anyone who wishes to disagree please go far,far away and rotate on a pinhead)
You have done a very nice job on such a simple box. I’m drawn more to the joinery rather than the wood, but that was before I learned that it was not oak but rather sycamore.
You might be underselling yourself with your etsy price…
Please keep the nice work coming ..
