The box body ( four walls) and the tray are made of the reclaimed wood from rotten deck chair.
( I am not sure the material but looks like a sort of beech) Since the material is from the back rest of the chair, the longest one is curved.
Taking the advantage of curved material and constrained on hand material,
the box design was the result of the large compromise.
the legs are made of ebony, the lid is made of walnut and reclaimed one.
This is my first curved design (two walls and legs).

That is a great looking box – the only criticism is the photos.

I like the curved sides. They make it more interesting. Thanks for sharing.

That turned out well. Who would think that it had such humble beginnings?

Great way to bring value back to something that was once forgotten.
