The lid of this keepsake box or chest is made from an amazing piece of burr oak that has lived in my workshop for quite some time. It was too beautiful to cut down in size, so this box is a big one! The lid retains its natural bark edging. Internally, the box measures 12" x 8 3/4" x 7" and it will easily accept A4 documents. The body of the box is made of nicely figured oak jointed with graduated through dovetails. I made the hinge from a piece of quarter-sawn oak which clearly displays its distinctive markings.
It is fitted with one partitioned tray of about 1 1/2" depth, made from figured sycamore. Both the tray and the base of the box are lined with deep purple velvet.
Wouldn't it make a fine needlework box!
It’s worth remembering that wood is the traditional gift for a fifth wedding anniversary, as well as being the modern gift for a sixth wedding anniversary! Why not give this lovely box? I have another jewellery box for sale here.
If you have any questions about the box or need additional photographs, please message me. The contents shown in my photographs are not included.
The box weighs about 5kg and, of course, the contribution towards (Recorded Delivery) postage rate has to reflect that.
