Hi All 

This is one of my latest commissions. Made from ripple sycamore with a slip matched lid. Mother of pearl inlays on the lid and escutcheon with a fine black border. 
The lid is bordered in black acetal with polyester inlay. 

The interior consists of 3 trays made from macassar ebony with polyester inlays. Lined in ecru pig suede and fitted with high qualtity nickel hardware, danish oil finish followed with wax. 



Design or Plan used: My own design

The client was really pleased and ordered a second one for his brother.

The finish was several coats of danish oil followed by wax for a silky satin finish.

Size 300x200x100mm 12"x8"x4"

This is a gorgeous cuff link box with exceptional attention to detail and high end refinements which I am sure your client will appreciate for years to come! Obviously a lot of precision went into all of the details which are a tribute to your craftsmanship. I think you or anyone else would be hard pressed to find any flaws in this piece!

What did you use for a finish, and how big is this?
