Hello

Here is my first attempt to make a box

In the center of the lid there is the symbol of my region and the number is the number of my department

I used plywood and MDF

For the finish : 9 layers of laquer

Comments welcome

Thanks for looking

EDIT : a picture for the symbol of my region

It’s all important that the “fleur de lys” in canada

Digger,

Interesting shape and design. I admire what you have done with the materials you have worked with here. I do have some questions.

What are the dimensions of your box?
I don’t understand what is going on in picture number five.
Region of what, and department of what?

Thanks for sharing your work with us.

Nice box, great finish and clever design. Congrats for a first. Can’t wait to see your second, third, .... boxes.

I’m sure you had fun making this box. What tool did you use to sand the inside and outside wall curves?

Best

Hello

To all thanks for the comments

To Boxguy

The dimension is 14 cm x 14 cm x 6 cm ( Im not familiar with your system !!)
On the picture five : the piece you can see is a trivet.See the link

I use it often for picture. Sorry for the strange contrast

My country ( France ) is divided in 27 regions
I live in “bretagne”
The symbol is hermine or stoat (google traduction)
I add a picture # 6 with the symbol
This region is divided in 4 departments : number 22, 29, 56 ,35
My department is number 29

I hope all this will help you

Thanks for the comments
