Blue Velvet

“She wore blue velvet

bluer than velvet were her eyes …”


On an odd nothing-to-do day I found some velvet on the shelf. Lined two of my personal Stage 1 sets (S1EWB0010+ & S1EBDGT0020+) with it.

Nice custom job. Took me hours. Maybe we’ll do this for special customers. The shellac finish is custom too. I have too much time. 

Note the separator on the older set. It was unnecessary and unpractical. Got rid of it in the next revision of the box. Added magnets, shuts close with a snap, standard on all our slide top boxes now.

    The chessboard in the background is German made from Ulbrich. Very nice.

    Hi Izmet,

    The chessboard in the background, can I know where you got that? I like the typical matte-nacre-like quality of what I think is walnut. The blue velvet is pretty too. Very lush!

    I can think only of the David Lynch film.
