I made 12 of these for Christmas presents.
They were originally made for tissue covers but came up a little short so I made them into boxes.
The woods are Basswood for the light color and Walnut, Sapele and Mahogany for the dark colors.
I want to thank BritBoxMaker for his blog on how to make these boxes.
People cannot figure out how the wood rolls down the front and sides as one piece.
A couple of notes on the boxes. I used a 45 degree router bit and found if you can keep the tip
a few thousands under the wood and don’t cut thru you can glue and fold the line will usually become
invisible. If you go thru or run an exacto knife after words you’ll probably get a small visible line.
Finish is 2 coats of sealcoat, Deft lacquer sanding sealer and Deft semi gloss.
Thanks for looking and for the people before me who were gracious enough to show us there techniques
in drunkenness an box making.
