Beautiful little gems BC. The use of wood is really outstanding. So, which wood is your favorite? ;-) Just teasing. Thanks for posting these special boxes!

Nice wood selection and boxes. I would really like to see one open to find out how the lid is attached. Do they slide on the pin. I was expecting a lid that slips over a rim, but I see continuous grain on the spalted lid. Beautiful job!

Excellent. Such a beautiful combination of woods. Wonderful craftsmanship.

I too would like to see how they open… and how the pin is done. I’ve only done the slip on lid type.

Yes Robert the lid just slide open from either side. I first cut the base oval then use two face tape and cut the top using the band saw leaving the top proud of the base. Then I clamp into a vise and spoke shave the top to the base. This leave for a perfect fit to the base oval. The brass pin hole is drill before I remove it from the base, leaving it perfectly center to except the pin. You can sink the pin below the surface and glue a dowel to secure the top but I rather like the flash of the brass pin to show.

Chip I quest my favorite wood is the next project…lol

Mafe…I forgot to add in the description that the spalted top was bookmatch. Thanks for the comment…BC
