« Part 1: Starting off... the box itself... Part 2 of Jewellry Box series Part 3: Starting another box. »

While this is indeed a finished project… I am posting it here in Blogs because it is not all my work…This is another collaboration .. with my good mate Col.. master boxmaker.. Col has been helping me out with the last few boxes… I have supplied the timber while he has been doing the construction and then I have been applying the hand rubbed oil finish and lining the boxes.. I prefer an oil finish over a gloss polyurethane.

That is not to say I can’t make boxes … it is just that his designs with pinned timber hinges are quite fascinating and as I am rather busy, it made good sense for us to join forces.. also he is very fussy when it comes to boxes and his attention to detail is legendary. He does tend to spend more hours and effort on these boxes than he could ever get back for them…Timbers used were recycled Silky Oak, as well as Purple Heart, Hairy Oak and She Oak

Lining is kelly green felt stretched and glued over MDF substrate… this is so the color can be changed if need be

They keep getting better with every post.
Great idea being able to change the lining.
