This is a 3D string box (there are strings over all visible surfaces) with a drop on lid. It is solid,not veneered, with a pattern throughout the wall thickness.
Approx. 110mm square x 72mm high. Wall thickness 7mm.
Made from Oak with purpleheart and Padauk strings and lipping. With a Birch ply, foam lined base.
Glue PVA throughout.
Finish to 400grit with Organoil wax over Liberon sanding sealer.
As can be seen from the pictures the string lines are from two opposite directions at 45° to the box outline.
These cross, at 45° to the top edges and the box top/bottom cut line without a step.
It was made using the Ezee mitre technique with the addition of mitred cuts for the lipping, which is detailed in picture 4, left hand side. My thanks to Steve (Sras) for the lipping feature which he designed and is detailed in my blog The Matrix
