or ’oh no, now he’s doing it with curves’ (Thanks, Kate)
This is a ‘shell’ box. 125mm square by 60mm high (overall). Top wall thickness 4.5mm, base wall thickness 3mm. Made from American Black Walnut with Pau Amarello stringing. Glue is PVA and finish Wax over Sanding Sealer.
A chance to finally use my bandsaw circle jig
Pic 1 – The box.
Pic 2 – Lid removed, showing inside of lid and shell/pedestal base.
Pic 3 – Groove detail on pedestal base. Grooved to allow air movement on tight fitting shell halves.
Pic 4 – Strings from inside the lid.
Pic 5 – Detail of strings on lid and adjoining box side (external).
Pic 6 – The other shot of the box. It is incredibly difficult to photograph Walnut and do it justice, This is the alternate project post shot.
Just one more thing. This is a solid wood design, not veneered and the stringing goes all the way through.
I hope you enjoy it. I did.
