Continuing with my love for making boxes, I made this from scrap pieces of Partridge Wood (Panga Panga) and White Oak.
The two short ends fitted into rabbeted sides and 3 nails were hammered in for support as well as looks.
The bottom was recessed into a rabbet and ship lapped. There should be no significant wood movement on such a small piece so the ship lap was more for effect.
The Partridge Wood top was re-sawn and book matched. Because it is an oily wood and thus difficult to glue, I first used a 2 part epoxy to glue the two pieces together. Then I added two butterfly inlays for added support.
It’s now the new home for my Record 043.
