This listing is for one custom designed wooden 4x6 recipe box - it will be made especially for you in any color, style, theme or design that you desire! (It can also be used as a wedding guest book box!) The boxes shown are just a few of the custom boxes I've made for clients, to give you some ideas. You will not recieve any of the boxes in the photos; I'll be designing and making one specially for you! I can do pretty much any theme, color or style you have in mind - just contact me at www.etsy.com/convo_new.php?to_username=TheAdornedAbode and let me know what you are looking for and we can go from there to design your very own custom box!

*NEW! I am now offering free personalization on all of my boxes! If you would like a name, monogram, word, date, etc...added to your box, just let me know in the Notes to Seller and I will be happy to put it on your box in a complimentary color. Let me know if you have a preference as to the color or to the placement (lid top, lid rim, etc...).

* PLEASE SEE SHOP ANNOUNCEMENT ON FRONT PAGE FOR CURRENT SHIP TIMES: http://www.etsy.com/shop/TheAdornedAbode?ref=si_shop * Or just look at the shipping time under the shipping tab above. Let me know if you need it sooner, and depending on my current workload, I may be able to get it out more quickly. *

This large wooden recipe box is completely hand made. It is 1/2" thick and measures 7 ¼” x 4 ½” x 5 ¾” tall; it is one solid box that is built to last! In addition, it has a very sturdy hinge that runs almost the full length of the back (shown in the 4th picture) - it is meant to be used daily for years. It’s an heirloom quality recipe box that you can pass down to your child or grandchild someday.

It will organize at least 300 of your 4x6 recipe cards and dividers, photos, or address cards perfectly. It's also beautiful when used simply as room decor, and makes a very special wedding or shower gift. (If it’s for a shower, why not send a blank 4x6 card to each invitee and have them bring it to the shower with their favorite recipe written on it? Then give this box to the new bride along with a start on her recipe collection!).

I also hand distress the entire piece to add to it’s antique feel (I can skip this step if you prefer), and I always apply multiple coats of both the adhesive sealer, and another type of sealer, to really protect it from smudges and from the heat and steam that is natural in a kitchen. While it’s not waterproof, it can be wiped clean with a damp cloth when needed. The final sealer I use will not become sticky or tacky over time (this is especially common in humid rooms like kitchens when just a regular adhesive sealant is used).

Matching hard laminate divider tabs are SOLD SEPERATELY and can be made to match or coordinate your new box perfectly; you can see some of the dividers I've made previously for other boxes right here:
If you'd like a set, you can just purchase any set of dividers in my shop along with the box, and I will make them to match the box.

If you would like to purchase your own custom designed box, simply contact/convo me at www.etsy.com/convo_new.php?to_username=TheAdornedAbode and let me know what you need. I'll get right to work on ideas for you, and together we'll design your custom piece; once we iron out the details, I'll set you up a custom reserved listing. I’d love to make one that’s perfect for you!

* Your box will be shipped to you via the USPS; you can choose the shipping method you would like (Priority Mail, etc...) during checkout, and shipping cost is exact.

**Please note: If it's being shipped within the US, and the shipping cost is more than $11.95, I will ship it in a Medium Flat Rate Priority box for $11.95 and refund your difference when I mail the item, as this saves money for my West Coast clients.

* The shipping time (2-3 days for Priority Mail, etc...) indicates the time it takes to arrive to you after it is shipped; it will still take my regular turn around time to make the item and get it in the mail.

*Also, I am happy to ship internationally; it will calculate the exact shipping for my Int'l clients during checkout as well.

Thanks for looking, and have a wonderful day!
