This is ‘one from the vaults’ demonstrating veneered box work, for those of you interested in investigating this sort of thing (spalm are you looking).
This one is a cube, about 4” on a side, the background veneer is Sapele with a Sycamore and American Black Walnut pattern. As you can see the veneering is both inside and out. A smaller rectangular box slips inside, to contain your goodies, and is veneered in Yew on the outside and Sapele on the inside. All this is on an 6mm (1/4”) MDF substrate. Glued with contact adhesive (unusual for me as I routinely use PVA for veneering) for the veneer and PVA for the corner, mitre, joints.
Made in about 2002. When I had time on my hands and very little money.
