Saw this box while surfing recently and liked the look of it, so when a nice piece of sycamore showed up in the shop, I decided to see what I could do. The body of the box is 10” long, 3” hi and 6” front to back. The ends were ebonized with India ink, and the body of the box was dyed with trans tint orange and reddish brown. The finish was lacquer; seven coats. rubbed out with fine steel wool and paste wax. Hinges are Brusso butt hinges, and bottom liner is black butter suede. The top is curved front to back, and the underside of the cover is recessed 1/4 ”. A simple box to build, it did have a few challenges due to the curves. Thanks for looking.
