Artist's Paint Storage Box

 
 


 
This box was a present to an artist after a visit to her studio. Her acrylic paints were stored all over the place. The carcase frame and feet are made of Rose Alder. The front and side panels are Camphor Laurel from a log I collected locally. The rear panel is ½" Silky Oak veneered ply. The dovetailed till is White Meranti. Silver Ash was used for the drawer sides & back.
I put a lid support on the rear of the box as it was going to be stored against a wall. It allows the lid to open to aprox. 105°.
The overall dimensions are; 740mm (W) X 280mm (D) X 450mm (H). The Drawer is 60mm (H) & the till is 125mm (H). The finish is nitrocellulose lacquer.
