Here is my entry to the WSBB. I have made two of them to hold all my gold and diamonds. I’m going fill my boxes and cash in and live large for the rest of my life. I Just needed some boxes to carry everything till I sell it all. One is made of Purple heart and Cherry and the other is made of African Paduak, Bloodwood, and Maple. Finished with a spray lacquer. Thanks for looking and enjoy.

Very nice, I’m sure working with those small pieces must be very difficult. Great Job.

Quite impressive. You kept a nice, even thickness on everything, considering the size of these boxes.

I’m assuming you held these with a small clamp, or tweezers or something when you were cutting them?

One quick squeeze on the lacquer spray can was probably sufficient to coat the entire box! I know when I sprayed my tiny birdhouse with shellac, I had to be careful, as the force of the shellac wanted to blow the birdhouse around.

Looks like you do a little gold panning?
