This is the second box I made with the beautiful aspen and some roasted maple and I like the fact that both are Canadian lumber .
I made it in shoji style for our Japanese LJ’s friends which has been the inspiration for this box because of it’s simplicity and contrast .
The hinges are barrel type which require absolute precision when drilling the holes but work well and make for a very tight fitting lid which can be opened to 180 DEG .
The tray very simple to continue with the style ,just a couple buttons for decoration .
The lid lift is a round disc set in with a square bar across ,very simple but fits the style I think .
The dimensions are 10”W x 6” D x 4” H
The finish is spray lacquer and bee wax polish hand a red velvet liner in the lid ,tray and bottom .
