My latest hand tool project. Walnut finished with garnet shellac. Wool felt lining. The drawer isn’t really a secret compartment but it is hard to see if you don’t know it is there.

Just how big is an Ark? Looking at the window for comparison it is either a smallish window, or a biggish box.

I looked at your past posts for a hand carved shell, was that a first? I did note early on wooden hinges though, so if you are a hand tool only guy, a hinge is pretty crafty, as is a shell.

Nice box, thanks for posting it for us to enjoy.

An ark Is simply a container not any particular size. Big window biggish box. First shell that was usable. Had a couple flops that went to the scrap pile.
