This valet & watch box is constructed of solid Sepele & Wenge. The exterior of the entire box is hand carved to resemble lapping waves along the shoreline of a beach. The surface features undulating peaks and valleys which smoothly flow into one another.

The box features two levels of storage each of which is lined in a luxurious and durable felt lining. The top level houses two open faced removable sliding trays (approximately 3”W x 6”D x 1”D) perfect for the storage of rings, cufflinks and other small items. The second level is divided into six 3”x3” compartments for the storage of six watches.

No stains or dyes were used in the making of this piece and all colors seen are the natural colors of the wood.

Dimensions: 11”L x 7.75” x 5”H

Terrific work! The contrast of the woods is perfect. Your removable trays are a fine touch.

Interesting design: even though the box is heavily sculpted, it’s still a “square” box. What are the widths of the sides and the top? Do you draw the outline of all the ripples before beginning the sculpting? Thanks for sharing.

Very cool looking box. I’ve always seen these shaped boxes and thought they were very unique and yours is no exception.
