« Part 15: Completion and Dry fit up of the Trays Part 16 of Box making Curved Front Box series Part 17: The finished product from 2013 »

Today I completed the assembly of the trays, added some extra storage sections and The Curved Front Box is structurally finished.

Remaining to do is:

The selection fitment of the hinges locks and stays.
The repair of the veneer chip out.
Determining of external and internal finishes, and
The installation of the veneer edge trim.

So this is the end of the construction Blog and the next time you see the box it will be posted as a completed project. Its highly likely that will happen in early 2014

Here is the raw assembled box

Humm pictures don’t seem to want to load
2nd Try, not quite sure what happened the Project pictures were all going brown as well, but its OK now.

The Front

The Right Hand Side

The Back

The Left Hand Side

The Final Tray Layout
I wanted to add some sections for small items and provide a way to prevent necklaces and the likes from becoming tangled.
The rings were my solution, I didn’t want to do some thing too easy like straight dividers so this was the result.

Some New Guinea Rosewood was used, I selected a couple of suitable hole saws and set to work.
I used a length of garden hose to hold the rings, a bit like how a oil filter wrench would work.

The Bottom tray

The Trays out.

Wonderful result Robert. I can’t wait to see it with a finish and the hardware mounted.
