50's Style Box: 1995 - Gilman School
This one started out as a pretty plain box, with only a spike piercing through an existing knothole. Later I added the funky ebony wedges to make it more interesting. I also tried to line the compartment with brass, but I couldn't get it to work right. To open it, you just pull out the spike far enough so that the lid can rotate up to be at a 90-degree angle to the box.
