The Giant Cricket Box is, as the name implies, a larger version of the Cricket box design. The lid has a magnetic catch (latch) so that nothing will fall out. It opens by pressing down at one end of the lid. Each piece is unique and is available in many different woods. The exquisite finish consists of a coat of shellac followed by 2 coats of lacquer for a very smooth and durable finish. This small wood box is a perfect size box for rings, earrings, pills, etc.

Each one comes with a velvet pouch.

Dimensions: 5″(12.7cm) x 2.5″(6.35cm) x 1"(2.54cm)

Frequently asked questions about watswood

The finish I use is a CAB acrylic lacquer from Sherwin Williams with the vinyl sealer base coat. I often use paste wax with steel wool to make the piece feel better to the touch and to bring out the sheen.
Very little care if any is necessary aside from removing dust occasionally. You can use an air canister if you like. You may also use any wax type polish to bring out the sheen. If alcohol or a chemical gets on the piece, wipe off immediately. Letting a chemical sit will ruin the finish.
The leather lining I use is a synthetic suede called Ultrasuede. It can be wiped clean with a damp cloth.
Custom orders are accepted based on wood type only, unless a large quantity is desired. My boxes are all made in batches and are not conducive to size changes. I can do monograms as seen in this listing:
