This is the thinnest and fastest work on a box… Got the front and rear and trays in 3 mm thickness only… and it is still in dovetail joint. The fastest …. took me 8 hours last Saturday 19 June, 2010 .. overnight for glue to dry ….. plus a half day of the following day Sunday 20 June….. Everything goes smoothly with some alteration at the end….
Materials …. Recycled very selected portions.
LID AND BOTTOM =.. frame and unidentified wood (4mm thick)
FRONT AND BACK walls = PHILIPPINE EBONY OR KAMAGONG (3 mm thick)
RIGH AND LEFT SIDE WALL = NARRA (8mm thick)
TRAY 1 – SIDE WALLS – MOLAVE (5 mm thick), NARRA HANDLE, KAMAGONG FLOORING (4mm)
TRAY 2—SIDE WALLs – MOLAVE (4 mm thick), IPIL floor (3 mm tick)
CHALLENGES: all the joints done in hand cut dovetails in bigger angles due thin walls. framings of the bottom and lid are done in spline with grooves so that the walls will be fitted firmly.
