This type of box is made by boiling the wood sides, then bending on a form.

It is held together with wooden pegs and reed lacing.

Latching posts on ends hold lid on.

I make these with dragons too. The next box I post will have a dragons head on it.

There really are no patterns for this type of box. You have to get the side bending down, learn to lace and fit and secure a bottom. The latching posts and lids are were we get to get creative.

Beautiful boxes Dave. Simply elegant. I would like to try making one and wondering if you would share some your techniques.

Jeff,

I did a tutorial on the site below. Take a look, ask if you have any questions.
