This is a commissioned piece I’ve been working on. It is a sgian dubh presentation box for a woman in Scotland to give to her fiance on their wedding day. It is a traditional Scottish wedding, with kilts and the like, so inside will be a custom sgian dubh made just for him (but not by me; by the same guy who made my sgian dubh you see in the pictures).
Reclaimed White Oak from my family farm
Bog Oak from Ireland
Extruded Brass Hinges from Woodcraft
Red Jasper Cabochon
The sgian dubh is going to have a red jasper cabochon set into the pommel, so I thought it would be a grand idea to inlay one into the lid of the box. The rectangle around the wood, the keyed miters, and the interior dividers are all bog oak.
Oh, and the cuff links in the right compartment are bog oak cuff links I made myself, in case anyone was wondering.
