The Christmas gift that wowed - Blu-ray treasure box to hold movies based on Stephen King novels.
Made entirely from Maple, this treasure box has been designed to fit 40 Blu-rays. Each individual Blu-ray has it's own slot and the spacing between them is enough to get your fingers in. The centre divider is lower than the actual Blu-ray height to serve as an additional way to pick the disks.
All wood joinery is done with glue, old fashioned dowels, and some clever mechanical tension. Aside from the metal fasteners holding the hinges, the latches, and the decorative metal straps, no other fasteners have been used. Due to the unique shape of the inside, all fasteners have been sized to fit as the stock sizes were too long and would have broken through the wood on the inside.
The metal straps have been made from 20 gauge steel. Each nail holding the metal strap has been randomly positioned: the spacing and location was measured by the eye figuring the best place to put the nail. In that respect, each strap has its own unique position.
The 'Stephen King' inscription has been hand burnt onto the wood. In the process, the hot burning tool eats away a little bit of the wood thus leaving a unique texture on each letter.
The wood has been artificially distressed both on the outside and inside, although the inside distress job is minimal in order to protect the storage space.
The treasure chest is finished with Pure Tung Oil which penetrates the wood to emphasize the grain and colour. The metal straps have a thin coat of clear laquer.
Note: the weight is in grams; the dimensions are in millimeters and shown as length by width by height.
