To Andy, I dips my lid…...
When making a box I always like to try to include something extra when the box is opened. Here, when making the tray, I have been playing around with the idea of using the same species of wood as the box is made from but getting away from the constraints of square or rectangular dividers. On the ends of the tray I ran long grain so the ends had better strength.The tray base is a sandwich of thin foam under pigskin suede leather so the base of the tray has a soft feel. I feel this style of tray opens up many design freedoms for boxes.
The box is made from Queensland Maple and the inlay on the lid is from a Jarrah burl. The highlights on the lid and corners are made from red acrylic.
As usual, I would appreciate your feedback.
