Here are a few boxes that I have made recently. Whilst most of my projects are bigger than these, it is boxes that give me a lot of pleasure. The box at the back comproses of four smaller boxes – a base, sitting on this a larger box, an on this two smaller boxes. The light timber is huon pine, and the darker is wenge.
The three small boxes in front of the huon pine box are all made from Camphorlaurel; two with spalted sassafras lids and the third having a blackwood lid. The pulls are from Americam wallnut.
The box along the wall has a body made from Victorian Ash with the contrasting timber American wallnut.
The two boxes at the front each have Victorian ash for the ends, with one having the sides made from American wallnut and the other having its sides made from jarra. In both cases the lid insert is from camphorlaurel.
The huon pine and the three small boxes are all finished with white shellac followed by a paste wax. The remaining boxes finished using a Danish oil followed by natural wax.
Thanks for looking.
