I’ve had this design idea in my head ever since making the blackjack oak wing box so thought I’d see if it was doable. Dimensions:12×3 1/2×7 1/2”. No glue/pinned box joints.Double Shipwright style hinges. Tray with splined miters. Finished with Deft rattle can semi-gloss lacquer. I have no idea what the wood is. The pallet I got it from said India on the sticker. It looks somewhat like elm to me but is hard and not real heavy.

Awesome box. Great lid and hinge setup. Good looking wood, whatever it is. I’ll have to try a version of this.

Hey Andy, that’s pretty cool. No glue, eh? That makes it even cooler.

I believe that wood is “Indian Pallet Wood” if I’m not mistaken.

I really like the double-wing idea.. looks kind of like a Lamborghini, sorta.
