Intentionally miss-spelt, apologies to Walt D. (Copyright be damned, Walt didn’t make boxes).
These are three boxes in the EZmitre style each approx. 96mm x 96mm x 60mm with drop on lid.
The box walls are 6mm thick. The bases are 3mm Birch ply lined with 2mm craft foam..
Materials are Ebony, Paudauk and Sycamore with Rosewood lipping.
Glue is PVA and Cyanoacrylate (for the lipping).
Sanded to 240grit with finish of wax over sanding sealer.
Pic 1. The trio
Pic 2. Lids off
Pic 3. Hewee
Pic 4. Dewee
Pic 5. Louee
Pic 6. Inside. (Pattern is throughout, these are not veneered).
I wish I could say the 10mm Rosewood base on Hewee was intentional. It wasn’t
we all make mistakes. Mine was cutting the sides too short.
