This box had a broken wing and a few other damage issues that needed to be addressed so a bit of debating about the solution .
Well the answer was remove the original wings and come up with a new and different design and make new
faces for the lid and do some caving on the lid and refinish areas that had slight damage .

The repair turned out just nice and also changed the look of the box .

The comment about the damage was , it was on the desk and when i came back it was on the floor it may have been the cat .

They both look good. How did you do the bump affect?

Also Love the contrast all over the box. :>)

Outstanding Box! I like the way you distressed the wood, it gives it an ancient uniqueness all it’s own. Great work!!!

That is how we know the world isn’t flat. If it was, the cats would have knocked everything off by now 8^)

Great look! The texturing is really impressive, very old world!

Great repair job Klaus. Those sometime are harder than building new.
