This is a small cocobolo box 5 1/2”w x 3”d x 2”h that I made to hold ear buds and charger for the iPhone. I did not intend to sculpt this box, but felt it looked too plain after finishing. I took it back to the shop and did the sculpting a few days later. This box is made entirely from a small piece of cocobolo scrap. The sides are 7/16” thick and the bottom is a 1/8” thick solid piece, all resawn from 4/4 rough stock. The hinge is 1/8” brass rod. The finish on this box is 3 coats of paste wax. Cocobolo does not like oil based topcoat finishes. Thanks to all the truly skilled box builders on LJ’s. I learn a lot from you guys.
Thanks for looking!
