Introducing the String Box. Well it’s not that big a deal. This is the first project in a series experimenting with wrapping wood so a 360 degree lines up all the way around. I started a new blog series that invites my fellow LJs to give it a try. You can find the first installment at Secrets of the String Box Revealed, or by clicking this link.
These two boxes were cut from the same (wide) plank that was ripped down the middle. Each piece was then re-sawed and book matched to form two boxes with the same dimensions. It is made out of purple heart and maple, and the lines are purple heart and bloodwood. Each box is about 6×10 and 4” tall. I used the barbed slot hinges and plan to do a blog on my experience with all kinds of box hinges. They are coated with clear satin lacquer over gloss and buffed with Renaissance wax.
