“Eye of the Beholder” was designed for my girlfriend as a Christmas gift. The main design aspect of the box was the use of small, round mirrors to reflect views of the “holder” of the box…we all know the full saying. I made shallow couterbored holes to inlay the mirrors into the box components. In some cases I had to use wet/dry paper to shape the mirrors….when you purchase round mirrors they are not perfectly round! The body of the box will lift off the base to expose a hidden compartment. The legs are doweled into the base. The Spalted Maple “handle” is dovetailed into the top lid and another dovetail cut was used on it to create a grip position.
Finish: BLO/Varnish/Mineral Spirits mix. Hand buffed with BriWax.
Size: 7.25” x 7.25” x 6.75”
Enjoy and keep making sawdust!
