The Helical box is a unique symmetrical design that pivots around a brass rod. The 14 compartments are lined with genuine recycled Ultrasuede. Abalone shell diamond-shaped inlays are used to enhance the beauty of the tops. Two secret compartments are located underneath the top and are held in place by rare-earth magnets. These boxes are finely finished using 1 coat of blonde flake-shellac followed by 2 coats of lacquer, then hand polished with steel wool and English paste wax (it’s more work to polish, but the boxes look and feel so good afterwards that I can’t resist the extra effort). The resulting finish brings out the natural beauty of the woods and is extremely smooth and durable. The Helical box makes a perfect ring box, earring box, or presentation box for any small collectible.

Dimensions:8″ x 8″ x3″

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:
