This is the box I have been wanting to make for some time because I had this piece of birch bark veneer that I posted some time ago .
All the ideas and materials came together and it seems to work.
The birch bark which I glued to some MDF has not changed in colour or size since I glued it so it seems very stable .The box material is yellow birch from some hardwood flooring and is a nicely colored and grained piece .
The leather hinge is walnut and some leather from a old belt .
The finish is satin spray lacquer and the interior is lined with brown velvet .
The only thing that may get added to this is a lid lift but so far I have not thought of a fitting design .
The hinge on this box still has the dimple from the drill bit and it is something that I have improved along with the size which is down to 1`.
In my next post I will show the new way of how I make the hinge and improved it`s strength and installation .
