In this top opening box with mechanism detailed in the blog
I started to played with wood figures. The “picture” frame reinforces the idea.

Woods are guayubira (picture), roble de eslavonia y cancharana (frame) and cancharana (sides). A little piece of brown guayubira in the sliding dovetail. Guayubira particularly is a local wood with highly variable texture and colors.

thanks for looking.

Quedó muy bien el contraste entre las distintas maderas. Muy inteligente el sistema de apertura. Un abrazo.
