This box was started on boxing day 2011 and is one of six boxes I managed to get out of a 12”x48”x15/16” piece of mahagony .
I had been looking looking at this beautiful board for some time but could not decide what to make out of it,just needed the right moment to come along for the design .
The box is made from 3/8” material except for the lid which i managed to get from splitting the board in half and that way I managed to get six instead of three boxes.
Four of the boxes are 6”x6” and two are 6”x10” and all the same pattern except for the lid which is not hinged but fitted in a 35 degree bevel rim which allows the lid to just drop in position and fit nice and tight .
The finish is wipe on poly and the inside will be left with the same finish or lined with suede .
I will finish all six boxes as spare time allows which I have very little of lately ( job you know ) and they will make nice gifts during the year and may also be used for a fundraiser .
