DIAMONDS ARE A GIRLS BEST FRIEND

Editor's Choice - Aug 18, 2015

Now that I made this box maybe I am .
This box has likely more diamonds then any girl will ever have .
I designed this box around my new diamond pattern which has an interesting appearance as the look changes depending on the viewing angle and lighting .
The box is made from red oak and walnut with solid brass hinges ,the lid stay is a ball chain that drops between the side and tray and I added a custom tray lift handle made from lace wood and maple .
The finish is oil to bring out the wood tones and several coats of satin lacquer followed by a bees wax polish for that soft sheen .
The dimensions are 12” W x 8 1/4” D x 4 1/2” H slightly larger then I normally size a box .
Thanks for taking a look and as always comments and critiques are always welcome .

Beautiful. inside and outside.

The diamond pattern is unique. The inside tray matches the rest of the box quite well.
