This is a work in progress, first ever laser cut design object.
The objective of the object is that I want to be able to transport my tea set (tea pot and cups) plus my kettle in a proper box. Also I want to use the box itself, when open, has a tea service set.
The project was design with Autodesk Inventor. I haven’t worked on the kerf calculation or more detailed design.
The main hinge between the cover and the main body is a lengthwise leather piece. The handle will also be a flexible leather handle and the cover will be closed by leather claps. The 2 drawers will be closed in someway (not defined yet). The two inside covers (the one over the kettle space and the one with holes in them) will also be movable in some way
All the pieces are made of wood (usually/probably 1/2 Russian birch panel) except for the “boat insert” which will be in acrylic. That piece is design to be taken out then back in (to empty the waste water during tea serving).
I would like comments on the design, but also on where I could improve (considering laser design) and also to beautify the object (I am no artist).
