Anyone have an idea of how this box was constructed? My thought is a block of walnut was slided in half then a router and template were used to hollow out the interiors. I’m not sure, though, because of the interior corner angles; it would be hard to get that nice sharp 135-deg edge to corner angle. But maybe it was cleaned up with a chisel.
Never seen a box made just like this but have been cogitating on why a box couldn’t be made with a router – just hollowing out a length of stock, either with a template or on a router table with stops.
I emailed the guy asking some questions but never received an answer.
Sure is a nice looking box!
