I started this project quite some time ago, and decided to finish it.
I wanted to use shoji paper, and ordered a roll of it online.
It’s made from scrap most of it, and everything that was around our shop :)
The wood used is oak, hardwoods, something very light wood for the lids, and dowels.
I build it for fun,
Finished it with beewax.
Thank you for watching!

I love anything ‘Japanesey’. This box looks ceremonial. Nice work.

What a fine box.
Some lovely details, and yes the Japanese shines through.

Terrific workmanship and a fine example of oriental style.
