I completed the mechanism for the inside of the box lid and fit it to to canvasse boards that it will hold. I believe they are 12”X9? I built the cover for the top out of baltic birch ply and chamfered the edges to make it a bit more sleek. I put my artistic abilities to the test and printed off a quote from the English illustrator Arthur Rackham. I made sure the font was something attractive but would still be easy to burn. I printed the quote out and taped it to graphite transfer paper and then traced it onto the box for burning.

Once the cover for the lid was attached I figured I would create a little handle so I cut, filed and inlayed some, I think it’s Bocote, into the lid.

More to come…
