I had a request for a birthday gift, for a woman who happens to be a geologist or geology major… Anyway, she wanted a display box to give her for her birthday to show off all different cool rocks she has found over the years in Oregon. Originally the designed box was much more basic, and as pieces started coming together, more and more ideas came to mind as well. Eventually, this is what had evolved. It’s always funny to see how every little adjustment or addition can be caused by a few mistakes and it turns out to only add so much more than you originally planned for :)
The entire box is made of brazilian tigerwood, the glass was etched by hand, and the Oregon backstop doubles as an artistic touch.
The dividers turned out to be one of the few parts that played out exactly as planned. They are all interchangeable to customize even more to fit bigger rocks she may have.
Comments and critiques and other ideas are appreciated!
Thanks for looking :)
