>Making up a Christmas gift box that will enclose some black pearls I snagged and snuck into my luggage last year in the South Pacific. Mrs. Schwingding bought a bunch as gifts for her neices but none for herself.
I'm not too well versed in box making. The lid is too tight and I don't know how I'm going to fit it properly now.
The gold is Liberon gilt varnish, with just a dash of finely ground cobalt glitter, over a piece of figured maple. Inside and outside were lacquered.
Was, obviously, going for the shape of a Hershey's kiss.
