I am always working on a box. If you like to collect them drop me a note and I can tell you about what I'm working on in the shop right now. The box shown in this listing has sold.
Fine wood boxes are a treasure to behold each day and a wonderful usable container to accent any office or home. This is a gem of a box to display with its unique graceful legs, beautiful quilted Maple including a bark "birthmark". I let the wood have its own true character to remind us of the tree it used to be.
This box body is made from Quilted Maple. The lid is Quilted Maple with Vermillion and Walnut trim and a Vermillion and Walnut interior. The legs and finial are sculpted from Claro Walnut. The box stands approximately 12" tall and is approx. 6" square at its widest point.
I use a variety of woods and shapes to accent my work. I particularly enjoy adding some sort of sculptural aspect taking into consideration the colors, lines and visual weight of the woods. Boxes for me represent a treasure, curiosity, containment, waiting, organization and sometimes a beautiful thing to behold.
Thanks for stopping by my Portland Oregon Woodshop!
