Chip-carved box prototype is 2" x 1-1/4". It is made from pear. I say prototype because it was an experiment to see what exactly was feasible, especially the hardware. I made the strap hinges and hasp from thin brass, then blackened them. I made a little box joint jig too.

The new ones will have a refined more detailed design and better hardware.

I happen to own one of Linda;s chip carved trays. Until you hold it in your hand you can't begin to appreciate how beautiful it is.

Linda,  your box is beautiful. I can't wait to see the next one.
