I finally got around to finishing the marquetry boxes that I started in 2014
( blog http://lumberjocks.com/Longcase/blog/42584)
The boxes are almost identical apart from the different ladies inside the lid and the colour of the cotton velvet.
The feet are turned holly along with all the edging, most of the inside box edging is solid ebony along with the
trays. The hinges one again come from Andrew Crawford and the locks Lee Valley, the finish french polished.
The picture of the side of the boxes show one side with and without the (no so )secret drawer, the mechanism to open the draw is under the tray, the last picture shows everything open.
Overall its been a long project and now I can move on to other project but I’m quite pleased with how they have turned out.
Thanks for looking
