This is a box, 130mm x 130mm x 65mm.
Made from Ebony and Maple with a foam lined Birch ply base and Ebony lipping. The lid is drop on.
The glue used PVA. Sanded down to 400 grit with finish of wax over sanding sealer.
I wouldn’t advise the ‘solid throughout’ approach for this type of pattern as it results in relatively weak box sides. Put enough pressure on the centre of the top and it will collapse. Next time, for added strength, I’ll line the insides in a solid wood or ply.
Be seeing you.
