This is the second size of the set of 3 I used to make. When I was making these wood was also much less expensive than it is today. Therefore Koa at that time was costly but it didn’t cost me my home or my first born to get. Koa is probably my most favorite wood and since my wife is from Hawaii it is even more special.
I’m fortunate to still have Koa in my personal lumber inventory.
Anyway this medium sized box is made exactly like the small but jointed box, using glue and 1/8” dowels to secure. 1/8” brass rod hinge pin is also concealed with a dowel plug. All these boxes have a base lined with
faux suede over card. The finish on this type of box for me was generally two applications of Watco oil.
box size: 1-7/8” x 3-1/2” x 9-1/4”
If you have any questions or would like specific information, feel free to ask.
I have one other size of box in this series to show and will do so in a couple of days.
