The pictures are representative boxes which are designed and built with simple lines and form so that the natural beauty of the wood is the focus, not the box. The boxes feature combinations of domestic and exotic woods chosen for their beauty and uniqueness. The woods are finished in their natural state and hand rubbed to bring out the figure and color. The pictured boxes are 9×5 x 3 and hinged using barbed kerf hinges. I also build larger versions of the same form, as well as, lift lid boxes that are sold through a number of venues.
The pictured boxes are Sappy Walnut with Walnut Burl, African Mahogany with Pomelle Sapele, Black Walnut with Curly Cherry, Bloodwood with Quilted Big leaf Maple, and Wenge with Zebrawood.
