You don’t need expensive tools or enormous amounts of timber to make a box. This one is made from just over 1/10th of a square metre of veneer and a small piece of birch ply. Scraps and leftovers from other projects in my case. The main body of the box is three layers of Birch ply and one (the outer layer) of cherry (using the bottle in the 5th pic’ as a former). The top and bottom of the box are 3mm birch ply, veneered one side in Ebony and with a 2 layer wrap of the same around it (using the box body as a former)
Dimensions – 75mm diametre x 90mm high.
Materials – Birch, Cherry and Ebony veneer and Birch ply.
Adhesive – PVA
Finish – Spray Satin Acrylic
At last a simple box!
