First, I didn’t intentionally rip you off, Andy.
I’ve seen sculpted boxes and furniture, and they always intrigued me. I made the base of this box from curly maple, the top from bloodwood and wenge. The open grain of the wenge was filled with multiple coats of shellac. The final finish is Deft spray semi-gloss lacquer rubbed out with 0000 steel wool and paste wax.
I intended to build it with wooden hinges, but I got ahead of myself and forgot until it was too late. Hence the drop-in top with African blackwood knob. The size is 9×6 x 3 7/8.
Thanks for looking.
