This my latest commission, its a fully veneered ripple sycamore over an MDF core.. The lid has been bookmatched and bordered with walnut. The escutcheon is mother of pearl again bordered in walnut – it has a single lift out tray and the interior is lined in mulberry suede. It has been sealed with several coats of shellac andthen waxed for a silky smooth touch, it is fitted with my brass hardware which can be found here http://hawthornecrafts.com/box-hardware/ The hinges are based on the side rail hinge with a a few changes and there is no ugly square knuckle poking out the back.
