This box is a gift currently in USA. Simple but elegant. I was not able to take the details in photo. Only one is available. It is a very interesting box.
Features: 3 compartments—a secret bill section, ring and coins sliding tray on top, a removable bigger tray with divisions.
Wood used: Recycled Top cover: Narra framed with and old picture frame wood (somewhat like hickory) Sides: Longer lengths – Made from IPIL (A Philippine redwood) Shorter widths – Made from BALAYONG (Same but harder than NARRA) Bottom – Made from KAMAGONG (Philippine ebony) Trays—NARRA
1. Biggest challenge is to make the box into thin slats. the thickness of the boards is only 6 mm
2. Dovetail joint.. Although this was not my first dovetail joint, the challenge was to make a dovetail 6mm thick.
3. First time I finished thie with Tung Oil.
I have added more pictures on this., Thanks for Janna for taking photos as to how Janna’s box is now.
