Medium size poplar box with green stain

This is a medium size box for jewellery, trinkets, keepsakes etc. Like the black and purple boxes, it’s made from 6mm poplar ply. It’s smaller than the black and purple boxes but larger than the largest box I’ve made in 4mm birch ply.

As usual when I make a poplar box, I have used a thin coloured stain to bring out the wood’s grain. I lined the tray and bottom of the box with tan coloured Macrosuede, a hard wearing upholstery fabric.

The box was made in my usual way: laser cut and hand made. The laser cutter saves time by cutting out all the parts. There’s still several hours work glueing, clamping, sanding, polishing etc. The box is for sale in my shop.
