This is a Special Edition Trapezoid box featuring Abalone inlays. This is my longest running design. I've been making the Trapezoid box since 1994 soon after I started my business. This handcrafted jewelry box named The Trapezoid Box, when closed, represents a trapezoid at each of its 3 sides. Each triangular compartment pivots off the brass rod running straight down the back corner of the box. The compartments are able to turn freely around a 360 degree axis and will not tip due to the weighted base (1 pound of recycled buck-shot).

Features:

• magnetic hidden compartment
• genuine Ultrasuede lining
• weighted base
• time consuming lacquer finish
• contrasting wood inlays
• award wining design

The Trapezoid Box is featured in the book by Andrew Crawford named Fine Decorative Boxes, Sterling Publishers, page 139. It was also featured in American Woodworker magazine, April, 1998.

Dimensions: 7″ (17.8cm) triangular base, 5.25″ (13.3) h, trays are approximately .75" (19mm) deep.

Woods: Birdseye Maple, Brazilian Ebony, Curatinga Rosewood

This seller usually responds within a few hours.

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:
