Yellow Birch Letter Box

This sliding lid box is perfect for storing your precious letters. Following a traditional design, it has been made with carefully fitted hand-cut dovetails. The beautiful straight lines of the wood grain wrap around the box with quiet precision. The sapwood and heartwood create an image of sky and water where this 330+ year old yellow birch tree sank after being logged over 150 years ago. The log was recently recovered from the depths and now one small plank of that great tree continues its journey in this little box. The carefully hand softened edges are easy on the fingers and a reflection of the maker's care. The gentle, smooth action of the sliding lid hints at the value of its precious cargo.
