This box is made from beautiful quilted Australian Cedar that was salvaged from some very old broken furniture. Trying to find Cedar of this quality is almost impossible and when I first saw the broken furniture I knew the cedar would enhance a nice box design.
The Yin Yang symbol is made from Huon Pine and Beefwood and I liked the idea of the symmetry of a square box with this theme. I have tried to carry the Yin Yang theme into the tray design.
The box has been finished with a Hard Burnishing Oil and then waxed to get a smooth tactile shine. It is one of those shapes that are a delight to hold.
The box and trays are lined with a pigskin suede.
The box measures 190mm x 190mm x 85mm high.
