Leather Boxes, and Reuleaux Revisited

It seems I just can’t get enough of these resin medallion boxes (see my previous post). This time I made the sides of the boxes out of Proofgrade thick leather, for easier bending. I did not score the insides at all. The leather was dyed black before cutting, then remasked. The Draftboard parts were painted black with black gesso.

The sides for the Reuleaux Triangle box were glued together with white glue. I did add a little shelf cut from Draftboard inside to support the upper part of the leather.

For the round box I did a corset stitch with waxed thread, and I really like how it came out. Just for grins I made the lid using the same spoked design as the bottom of the box.

The acrylic/resin medallions were made in the same manner as indicated in my previous posting linked above.

You took the words right out of my mouth!

I’d be tempted to cut little leather squares to glue into the draft board lid :stuck_out_tongue:

Those are terrific! I still have the PG leather from the stuff from new as it is too small for a major project.

I also just received the colors to play with as well! Now I only need the ability gumption?) to conquer the black cable without messing up.
