Nice Watch Box
Martin sent me these pictures of his latest project, a very nice watch box in wenge and birds eye maple with a pig suede lining. It has a subtle finger opening with two nicely shaped curved chamfers.
The hinges are 90 degree stop hinges from Brusso, these open a couple of degrees past 90 so the lid stays open.
Some nice solid birds eye maple for the lid panel with an angled chamfer, probably a Chris Becksvoort router bit from Lee Valley.
The case is dovetailed, although hardly visible in this dark wood. The inside lid is mirrored, a nice touch.
And here we are ready to go, a watch for every day of the week!
