A “wow” box by Mark Hailston just arrived. It recently won first prize at the ACT Woodcraft competition in the Boxes (not turned) category.
The box core is marine plywood covered with shop made veneer. The veneer is made up of the following timbers: Blackwood, Jarrah, Wenge, Tas Oak & Celery Top Pine. Strips of each timber were cut to various thicknesses and then laminated together. Strips were then cut of the block to form the veneer. This was then glued to the substrate and from there the box was built in the normal way.
Price: $2000 Dimensions: 210w x 210w x 115h mm
