Making a leather storage box


A customer had asked me to keep a photo diary of the making of his presentation box so I thought I would put it up on our blog for all to see.

We always start with the inside measurements. ie the dimensions of the object or objects that are to be stored. In this case they were a series of mounted photographs.

Then the inside tray is constructed using double thickness grey board { 6mm thick} and staggered joints in the corners for extra strenght. The outer tray is then made to fit the inner and then they are both covered in cloth or paper.
In this instance we have used a handmade marbled paper.
