Fuchsia Box

Hi All

This box was specially produced for Aryma, the creators of the realistic fuchsia marquetry used on the lid and box front. The interior has been finished with sawn Native Sycamore veneers and the matching Sycamore single tray is lined in rich red suede. The striking colour combinations of red, black, green and cream denote an oriental feel. The finish is an open grained French polish and high quality nickel hardware has been used.

This was a first for me using veneers that had to line up so precisely but all turned out well and they were over the moon.

Cheers

Ian

Yes, it’s very much evocative of the Japanese lacquer ware I’ve seen. This is a gorgeous piece; you have as much reason to be proud of it as the intended recipient has to be delighted by it.

Well done, sir.

Ian,
An absolutely gorgeous box. I’m very attracted to the oriental feel and the striking colors. As always, your craftsmanship is superb. A really, really nice piece.

What a beautiful box. Where to start. Aesthetically its perfect. The pattern match is spot on. The finish as well.
The craftsmanship flawless. An absolutely first class job and an eye catcher of a post.
