Its not quite finished yet as i still have some decoration to add to the lower half, but the basic shape is complete. Dimensions are 75mm height x 50mm width.
There's also a little more work to do on the inside once this is done i shall take some more photos showing the inside and the contents which is in my view a remarkable little treasure.
The wood i used to make this piece was once a box used for holding engineering instruments which dated to around 1900 it was tosed away so i decided i would take it home and put it to some use i think you would agree it looks better like this than burnt on a bonfire.
Stay tuned for the compleated piece next week and the contents!
As always a very warm welcome to my new followers, and a big thanks for taking an interest in the pieces i make.
Have a great week everyone. Tony.
