Hi All

It’s been a long time since I posted anything, this is due to being very busy and perhaps a bit lazy!

Anyway here is a box I have just finished, a very plain exterior with no added decoration just the wood grain. The inside has 2 liftout trays made from oak and lined in black suede. Fitted with my stainless steel Neat hinges and finished with several coats of excellose polish and wax.

Cheers

Ian

Ian,
Lovely piece indeed. Top tray is really a nice approach. Using oak all the way through provides a rich consistency. Is the tray lid hinged, or drop in? Nicely done! Great to see your work back on LJ.

I like it. What is that on the inside of the lid? A personal quote? A personal saying? Just curious. Thnx in advance.

IMHO this piece would be more accurately named “Hidden Treasures” since the simple, elegant beauty of the exterior doesn’t prepare one for the unexpected beauty of the interior trays as accented by the black suede. This is an outstanding piece due to the understated, simplicity of its impression!
