We had a clear-out and up popped this. It dates from the mid-1980’s, when I didn’t have a proper workshop and did all my woodwork on a Black and Decker Workmate (knockdown bench) in the back yard, on the few good days we have in England. I believe I used a Bosch 1/4” Router and the timber was hand sawn and planed.
Yes, its a playing card case, in Ebony and Bird’s Eye Maple.
Size 106mm x 76mm x 26mm.
Glue is PVA (I’ve always used it).
Finish is wax over sanding sealer (and that too).
I’d thought it was lost forever.
