“Reflection” first came to me in a dream. Once fully awake I sketched and then drafted the plans. I have ‘bout 45 hours involved in the creating. Unseen is the neodymium magnets which hold the lids together. I notched and buried them in the two front cornerz of each lid and their corresponding surface before assembly. Basically an invisible magnetic latch. The woods used are cherry(china red), hickory(madeira gold) and walnut for the bowties. The 5/32” brass rod at the bottom was an after thought, just needed a little extra flair. This is a gift for my best friendz, (Mark & Dawn), 18th anniversary. Extremely fun to design and create!! Peace
