Room Box Update.

Hi everyone, and a warm welcome to my new followers.
I thought id post a couple of images of the draw that's part of the room box as i have made a little progress on this too. As you can see from the image below the draw has a lid which has a built in mirror, this acts as a window to view the ceiling of the room box itself.

The reflection you see in the mirror is not the completed ceiling just an image i have placed there so you can see how this works.

I have managed to use a genuine antique mirror for the construction of this, it also has a ivory and tortoise shell frame.

The top of the draw is removable by sliding out the top section, the above image also gives a better view of the tiny draw knob which is inlaid with a beautiful piece of blue lace agate. I really have no idea how this piece will eventually turn out as i have made no detailed plans or drawings and I'm bound to come across the odd problem here or there as i have done already but its been worth it up to now. I now need to start visualising the interior and start looking at the types of different lighting I'm going to use.
Have a great week everyone.   Tony.
