Deep engrave on Poplar makes rich box as present for partner,

My housemate was needing to pack a lunch frequently and got a special bag with refrigerator cells and special eating utensils that came in a cheesy plastic box. So I made her a better one out of poplar. the engrave is vector but goes halfway through the 1/4" wood

By putting the magnets at the ends it can open like a hinge or you can just lift the top off,

Not bad, I like how the engrave continues from lid to body. Nice choice.

It looks like you broke the engrave into two pieces at the lid/base interface? I assume that was to keep the edge thickness? It would sidestep some tricky bits if you did.

Smart, beautiful design.

I wanted to make the interface disappear and it did not quite do that but I was able to maneuver the same design to fit at the ends and sides and be reflected at the top.

By going deep it is like two layers of 1/8 instead of one of 1/4.

That’s the best looking lunchbox!

Too small for the lunch, there is an amazing complex bag for that, it includes a place for the silverware that has a velvet bag in a cheesy plastic box. This just replaced the cheesy box.

Nice work. Carrying the engrave throughout is a neat idea. I makes the box look very intricate and detailed. Nice effect!
