Good afternoon lumberjocks ! Today I’m sharing a Bead box commissioned for a lady in Millbrook New York. This box is made especially to house her collection of “Troll Beads” These interchangable beads come in many colors and designs are are currently the “fad” in sheik jewelry. http://www.trollbeads.com This box is was designed from the inside out, with each “cubby” being 1 1/2” square; which made the box 8 13/16” x 12 11/16” x 3 3/16” outside dimensions. the sides are machined to 7/16” with the dividers @ 3/16. The cover is mounted on Brusso JB 103 stop hinges, and holds a piece of glass to “show off” the brilliant colors of the beads. The brass rods are used to hold specific collections of beads and small rubber “o” rings hold the beads in place. The longer cubbies are for holding the bracelets. The bottom is lined with her favorite color butter suede, and the finish on the box is danish oil. small dado joints and half lap joints align and hold the dividers in place, and the box rests on small plastic glides.
