This is the 3rd box already handcarried by Alvin himself to USA. The sides are recycled 2×3 somewhat a brownish color wood but strong and brittle. The bottom is Gimelina and the top is Narra with sapwood.
The good thing with this is the presence of sapwood in the Narra is perfect to match the bottom borderline of Gemilina. It added beauty also on the top grain combination.
There is no way but only dovetail will cater for the uneven sides joints. The left and right side are 1/4, the front is 3/16 and the back is 3/8 to attach the hinges.
Actually this is for the wife of Alvin…. I have prepared the bands to inlay but I canceled it due to time constraint to dry the glue and the sides are so thin that it may weakened.
Hope you like it.
