A little something I was requested to make for my cousin as her pup is getting older and she wanted a small box to keep things in so when she is gone…
The box it’s self was machined from walnut. The bottom hollowed out and flocked with a Navy blue flocking material. The top just a thin piece machined to accept a piece of gloss acrylic with the dogs picture. I used just a couple of 10mm brass barrel hinges and latched with a magnet.
It was finished with a water based lacquer in a semi-gloss sheen. It’s dimensions are 9”L X 6”W X 2 1/4”H

Thanks everyone! Yeah it’s pretty basic box but pretty easy to make especially from scraps:)

Very, very nice. Excellent craftsmanship! How is the picture and other design elements done? Are they on the back of the acrylic with black background or? TNX

The engraving was all done on the front with a piece if solid gloss black acrylic. I was thinking about using clear and a black background however I wasn’t sure how the chamfer would work. The pics aren’t that great so it’s hard to see the chamfer on the acrylic:(

Simple box but really well crafted and has clean lines. Good idea on top for pet’s photo. A great tribute for our little friends.
