This is a small box 74mm square x 45mm high (2.9” sq. x 1.77”)
on a 84mm square x 6mm (3.3” sq. x .25”) pedestal base.
Made from American Black Walnut and Pau Amarello with a Birch ply liner. Both made using EZmitre. With a green baise bottom.
It is what I call a shell box. The shell is the top and sides which slides over the base, which is integral to the pedestal.
The base being a shell to which the mitred pedestal trim is attached. You open the box by placing finger and thumb on opposite sides of the pedestal, to hold it down, and lift the whole top up and off.
Glue is PVA and finish wax over sanding sealer.
It was made in parallel with Italian Restaurant over a couple of weeks so, no, I can’t churn them out in one day.
