Hi All

The Oak Trilogy is similar in theme to the Yew Trilogy, displaying a trio of Native Oak Burr portraits on the lid top surrounded by bleached Sycamore. The box is created from European Oak with a lift out tray in creamy Native Sycamore. The decorative detail on the lid and tray has an Art Deco influence and the interior has been lined in cielo blue suede and the lock plates and hinges are aluminium. It has been finished using shellac and a final coat of wax is applied for a silky soft sheen.

This is on display at the Designyard Dublin.

Cheers
Ian

Sweet! Nice contrasts. A visual treat. And, as usual, flawless construction.

Ian,
Another fine box. Your treatment of oak is exemplary. Hard to choose between this one and the yew box.
