Box from Richard L.
"I am a surgeon, woodworker and wristwatch enthusiast living in Houston, TX. This project was conceived to bridge several interests and test out some new techniques. It depends heavily on beautiful, high quality brass hardware from Brusso.
The hinge action is smooth and the latch mechanism makes a very satisfying and solid “snap” when closing. The maple burl veneer is designed to wrap seamlessly with continuous grain around the box. The edging is wenge and the lining and dividers are cherry. Just a very simple project that highlights interesting materials and top notch hardware - and provides a luxurious home for some favorite watches."
