Reliquary

I wanted to make a container that would conceal, contain or display an object of beauty or significance to the owner. The knob on the top of the box slides forward to lock the front panel down or hold the panel in a raised position. The shaping done on the frame was done with hand tools which gives the piece a more organic feel and revealed more interesting patterns in the wood grain. The piece is all cherry hardwood and is joined with sixteen hand cut mortise and tenon joints

Ext. Dimensions: 9 in. wide, 9 in. deep, 13 in. high
Int. Dimensions: 7 in. wide, 7 in deep, 7.5 in high

I can provide prices for variations on dimensions and wood.
