The box was made of 1/2” padauk. There are eight 3/8” rare earth magnets hidden in the top edge (4 sets of 2 stacked on top each other to increase the magnetic pull). The lid has four magnets, also hidden. The top is three 1/8” thick pieces laminated together to allow the magnets to be hidden. The monogram was scrolled into the top laminate, backed with the second laminate and the third laminate added to cover the magnets. The scroll work pictured is actually residue. It’s the backing plywood that was double side taped to the padauk to give it more rigidity and help eliminate pieces breaking off during scroll sawing. I used pine epoxy stick to fill in the monogram then ran it through my thickness sander to remove the excess epoxy filler and level the top.

This is a wonderful box and a real eye catcher. The monogram and artwork on the top is a fabulous detail. This makes a fine gift for any golfer and it shows a lot of nice craftsmanship.

Excellent work. Thanks for the build explanations.
BTW, what is that “pine epoxy stick” of which you speak?

I’d not heard of the pine epoxy stick either. But, the miracle of a google search yielded this:

Looks interesting! I might have to get some to play around with.
