This little shaped box is made from hardwood that I was given so I don’t know what it is exactly. It measures 15×15cm & 3cm deep. The round inside was cut with a course heavy duty blade on the scroll saw and the outer was done on the bandsaw.
The carving was initially cut out on the scroll saw then carved down and screwed on top of the box after first coating with two coats of 50% white shellac to seal the wood. Then varnished with two coats of gloss poly. The box was the same but was Sanded down between each coat, up to 400 grit. But using 800 & 1000 for sanding between coats of polyurethane.
This is my first box to be lined with velvet and I really love the look. Had to make cardboard inserts, glue the material on, then glue & insert into box. I used fabric glue very sparingly ( after a botch up! )
