Once again, brilliant! Nice work.
Thanks for the kind words guys.
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?
