The 7th box of 7 rush boxes..
The box is big 3×6 x 11 inches.
The sides are Molave 5/16 inch thick and dovetail joint.
The bottom cover is rabbetted Narra – a nice work for joining 2 boards.
The top is the most difficult work I encountered. The frame is from a hardwood called BALITADTAD – a brown wood with white streaks. The inlay is from US wood for pallet – I pretty sure it is not a pine. I routed 3 passes in order to be accurate The center board is TIGER MOLAVE – This is really very hard. The board is only 4 mm thick but still strong. There are cracks along the way but not going straight. I was not bother with this since molave is still in-tack even with some cracks.
The hinge is brass plated and strong.
The dividers are also very hard and 4 mm slats. I think the wood is Ipil.
All above materials were all recycled.
