little box with spring mechanism which is detailed in the blog

box structure and sliding dovetail in guayubira
lid frame in cancharana
inlay in guayubira, kiri, marupá, cancharana

guayubira can be very dark (almost black), dark brown, pale brown, and a mix of these.

some mistakes here, and needs improvement in finishing.
I like this box anyway,

best regards

Nice Work my Friend!
Do you sell them, gift them, or do you have a houseful like me? :)
