I finished this box last week. It’s made from capaiba-wood and maple. The “hinges”is bit a 3mm brass.

The box is 180×280x85mm

Thanks for watching

Rick

Very nice…Shaping wood with flowing curves always seems to bring out alot of the woods character.

I really like the scooped look and the extended lid handles and how they pivot. Very nice design.

I don’t usually go for ‘melted’ boxes but the hinge pin has me sold on this one, Rick.

Came out really nice, the contrasts in woods was a great choice.

Beautiful wood. Never heard of it, but there is still much to know. It goes well with the Maple. I also like the two part lid.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

Very cool design. I’ve never seen that wood either but I like it. I’m envious of your subtle sculpting on this one. It adds to the overall intrigue.

Great design. Very unique. I love the flow of the top and how the dividers fit in.
