Wenge And Padauk Box

author-gravatar WoodGate Mar 02, 2019

I just finished this box for a show. Box is Wenge and Padauk. Interior lift out box, dividers and sleeve are Maple. Stop hinges are Brusso and has a humidor style lock. Lock has a silk tassel. Box is finished in polyurethane and is black suede lined. The Maple sleeve fit so well I decided to leave it as friction fit and did not glue it. The 3 dividers are held in by the sleeve.

Wow, that's a beautiful box! I love that combination. You are killing it with the boxes you've shared!   

Thanks for sharing.

Thank you! I am trying to build up a little stock for a show/sale. I hope to get 2 more music boxes (both with 50 note Orpheus movements) and 2 more jewelry boxes completed by the show in June. Should be able to do it. 

Unfortunately I can no longer do any "exotic" woods like this one. I have an allergic reaction every time I do. This'll be the last.

Ah man, that's a bummer about the allergy! What about using veneer? That may allow you to continue to use them without milling them.
