This is a special gift for a Captain of a merchant ship that years past, I was able to lead his way to his advancement from a cadet to a master. So I made this box with a touch of ship features.
HINGE is different but easy to make… you can take a look on the process..
THE STAR ON TOP. Just a star to signify success but for me it serves as the knob for the lid. It was made from strips of wood glued together and sawn with a back saw with a miter box as the guide.
THE STYLE is quite different… The box is shallow but large enough and rectangular. Being a wedding gift, the purpose is to keep those important jewels that they will receive.. Happy Wedlock. In this event Narra wood makes it more serious and lasting. The top lid and bottom board are really made too thin.
Hope the couples will love this box. I have to post it now as it will be packed already.. The wedding will be on Saturday. I will be there.
Thanks and best wishes for the couples.
HAVE A NICE DAY TO ALL!
