Hugs & Kisses trinket boxes

Hi Folks

I produced a small batch of trinket boxes for Christmas. These boxes are made from walnut with an abstract hugs and kisses design on the lid. The direction of the grain changes to highlight the detail. I always add a small line to the front for alignment. No hinges needed just small internal walls that, when fitted correctly, give a slip fit. Lined in a bright orange pigs suede and finished with 2 coats of excellose & wax.

Size 60×60x45mm

Cheers

Ian

Beautiful boxes with a great surprise inside—that orange pig suede really sets the design off!
