Pill Box


I made this little wooden box today from a scrap of rimu tongue-and-groove panelling.

The timber had been milled with a pair of grooves running down its length, which I filled with strips of kwila. The hinge is cut down from one of some small brass-plated piano hinges I got from Ukraine not long ago.

The dimensions of the box are roughly 80 x 112 x 25mm, with an internal cavity 55 x 90 x 15mm. It's held closed by four 3x3mm cylindrical rare-earth magnets, which keep it fairly firmly shut without being too difficult to open.

I've rounded off all the corners so that it will sit comfortably in a pocket.
