This was another box given to my dad as a Christmas present. This box went a little better than the last one, but it was once again the hinge that got me. There is actually a lot of layers in the lid of this box and it was not at all intentional. I kept making mistakes and then gluing on more wood to fix it. I eventually (yes a lot of mistakes) got the idea to use the contrasting wood and it actually turned out for the better I think. For example, the underside of the lid was not originally going to have the Brazilian cherry until I realized I had cut the lip too deep. There’s about 5 layers of wood on the back side of the lid…. yes 5 layers as in measure once cut 5 times.
