. . . compartment, that is. This is a “tissue box” that I’ve been wanting to make for quite awhile. I like to keep some sort of protection close by, and easily accessible, but not too obvious or easily found. So I came up with this box whcih I designed in Sketchup.
I didn’t want it to be obvious that the box was cut in half so I decided to make an inlay and place it right at the cut, which seems to work. I designed it to accept a (small) box of tissue, but decided that even with the smallest box of tissue it looked too big, so I had to cut it down a bit.
Making the inlay (wenge, cherry, purpleheart, maple) was a great learning experience and I think I’ll be doing more of it in the future. This is my first time using leopardwood and I’m not all that crazy about it. I think that if I want this kind of look in the future, I’ll use lacewood instead.
Thanks for looking
