I’ve wanted to do something like this for awhile. Another, in PNG Rosewood, with real joints is on the way.

Black Laminex Colour Core, Chilean Myrtle, graphite, butt joints, mitres, biscuits and BLO mix.

Cheers fellas, pleased to hear you like the box. I’ll be repeating it. My goal is always to try and make the design stronger than the workmanship and materials.

Could I trouble you to point out which is the Chilean myrtle?

Is most of the box a laminate?

Sorry for my dimwittedness.

G’day Tony, the box is timber, the joints are laminate. Managing those small bits was trickier than I thought it would be. The rebate is colored with graphite.
