4 years in the making and many prototypes!

13 separate layers of 1/8 Baltic birch- laser cut and etched. 32 tiny doors of 1/8” cherry, 64 metal hinges
Installed with 128 tiny rivets! Made as alignment jig and and a press for assembly. Acrylic paint job.

I actually finished a project!

3 out of 13 sold and built, Just sold 2 more for Christmas delivery.

I may have charged too little
