Disturbed wave

This was another try for me. I have experimented with technique and also tried to incorporate few changes to the box functionality. The end result is a very good box and a lot of new stuff learned.

It is made from English Oak (sides) and Ash (top).
The splines are made from Ash and 80 years old reclaimed Acacia.

I went for a wavy design and wanted for waves to follow each other and then suddenly disperse.

I have decided to go for no handle design because it would only interfere and probably “damage” the look. The lid is opened by pressing the back part of it. Really easy.

English Oak is quite nice wood to work with and the scratches look absolutely amazing on it so I decided to leave some on. There aren’t that much visible but can be noticed when looked for – look at last image.

Oh and I didn’t take a picture but inside is lined with leather.

Thanks for visit

Cheers

really nice work. my only question is how does the lid function? is it just a lift off lid or are those dowels on the side a hinge?

good job on the carving too

Thank you all for your comments.

@Peter1 the carving is done with angle grinder. A tedious process that involves a lot of patience.

@Tooch The lid is opened by pressing the back part of it, behind the hinges. And yes those dowels are hinges. It opens really easy and the look is untouched.

Heavy, I like the look here. The wave idea is a good one. I especially like the look in the first picture where it flows down over the corner. Dimensions and an inside look help your readers get a better idea of what you have created. Nice job on the photos, but what is that corn about?
