As in striped, like a Zebra.
This is a prototype of a fully mitred box, even the top is mitred, made using a novel technique (well to me anyway) which I don’t claim to have invented but haven’t seen used here before. The box and lid are made from a single patterened board. As a teaser the last pic shows the board it was made from.
The box is approx. 135×80 x 44mm. Is made from Maple and Rosewood, with Ebony lipping and a birch base( with foam insert). Finish is sanding sealer and wax. As you can see from the third pic the top is reversable, for a slightly different effect.
