This is one of my newer designs for display at the Gallery (Was juried into the Washington Street Artist Co-op this fall) I took the first box up to the gallery and it sold within 5 minutes of setting it down. Had this, its sister box already started.
The box is solid Walnut with mitered corners. The top Maple as well as the the splines in the corners. The top is inlayed with walnut and the sides of the top are gently rounded. The interior dividers are maple and friction fit to be removable. The box is lined in black velvet.
The finish is one coat of my shop made oil/varnish blend. Then topped off with about 4 coats of Shellac. After the shellac is fully dried (i give it 24hrs ) it is very lightly sanded with 320 to remove the last few dust nibs and then rubbed down with 0000 steel wool and finished with a coat of past wax.
The hinges are solid brass stopped hinges morticed into the top and base.
