This very sharp box pairs two precious exotic lumbers, African Mahogany for the sides and African Bubinga for the top. This box has a weathered charm to it as the mahogany has some natural staining as is particularly seen from the back picture. A very finely executed box to hold your precious keepsakes.
The joinery on this box is miters with Walnut miter keys which have a dual purpose in adding both a decorative element as well as making the miter joint stronger.
I selected a suede fabric for this box. This lining is upholstered so that your items comfortably sit on a cushioned surface. I’ve developed a custom, furniture-style upholstery technique for my boxes which results in a more luxurious feel than just lining the box bottom with material.
Finished with a variety of products to provide a soft warm luster. I easily spend the majority of time in my builds in finishing. Many stages… many products are involved in order to achieve what you see in my final products.
The hidden metal hinges I use in my boxes will allow the top to rotate back to just past 90 degrees and then rest in that open position unsupported.
As with all my offerings, this is a one-of-a-kind box… don’t let the box that speaks to you slip away forever!
