beautiful box, did you use seperate boards for the main body or was it one chunk of wood?

That is beautiful!

Using a different wood for the fronts would seem to make construction more tricky – although I suppose that the fronts could be made slightly larger to reduce the effect of the saw kerf in the body ? I’d like to know how you proceeded, please.

Hi,
its one chunk of wood. The front is a copy. I made it 2-3mm larger and sand it to fit the drawer

Nice line flow on the front of the box and I love that olive wood.

Really nice, Lars. Great sanding and finishing job.
Beautiful grain, beautiful box.

A dreamily elegant piece of work. The flow of the design and the induced curves are really quite special. It invites a caress of both your hand and eyes.
