This is one of a series of unusual curved lid boxes that I am creating. The lid is carefully crafted so it has a uniform thickness following the entire curve. The curve of the box matches the soft easy flow of the lid and all outer edges are rounded to give a very soft feel to this box.
The lid is hinged with 1/8" brass rods and held captive by handmade dowel pins that match the wood of the box. The box itself is created using "hidden splines" to give additional strength..
The box is lined with high quality "Ultra Suede" softened with a thin layer of hi-density foam
All wood natural color, no stains or dyes used
8" Wide x 4 1/2 " Deep x 2 3/4" Tall
The finish on this box is hand rubbed with several coats of a special mixture of oil and varnish and then hand rubbed again with several coats of a Beeswax and Carnuba blend of wax to give it a wonderful "soft" sheen and a feel of "silk" when you rub your hand over it.
I take great pride in my work and strive to create pieces of only the "finest quality" therefore I am proud to put my signature on the bottom of each box along with the date. I also note the types of wood that they are made from. All of my boxes are considered "Gallery Quality" and are Guaranteed.
