This is my Attempt 23. I love box with mechanisms, more than a box, they are a toy for me. I remember the hours playing with my grandma´s box before her eyes fearful.

woods are laurel, cancharana, mora y lapacho. If some one is interested in the english name, I can search in my archive.

In this attempt there were a lot of things to improve: finishing and joinery specially.

thanks for your nice welcome and comments

Another nice box Cancharanay! Was the mechanism complicated to build? Where did you find the pattern? I have a difficult time with finish on my projects. I have a bunch that are just waiting for me to apply the finish. Just need to do it and learn from the mistakes instead of dreading them. Thanks for sharing.

-- God bless, Candy

thanks Candy. Mechanisms are not complicated, but take time and some skills. I will take photos of the construction steps next time.

Beautiful choice of woods and a very nice use of the drawer mechanism. Gives the box a distinct flavor. Well done
