Handmade plywood gift box with unusual textured wood.

I’m not sure if there is a name for this technique of woodworking, but this box has been made from plywood that has been sanded away to create a really unusual pattern and texture. Very tactile, unusual little thing! 

The lid lifts completely away from the box and inside is the second box giving a nice square compartment. 

In primitive condition. The sides have been glued. Some of the ply has flaked in places and there is one joint on the back of the box that could do with re-glueing. It’s structurally sound, but there is a slight gap. Please see photos.
The interior could do with a really good clean, or light sanding. Slightly marked. 

I think the box was originally varnished. This is pretty much all worn away so the box is virtually back to his bare wood status. Some of the raised areas still have a shine. Could look really nice waxed!
