Turned wooden box with lid, handmade from recycled Australian hardwood

Description

This small box has been turned from salvaged scraps of Australian hardwood, that was otherwise going to end up as firewood or landfill. The box itself is from an old hardwood fence post, possibly blue gum or ironbark. It is a very hard smooth timber, with beautiful deep red colour. There is some slight weathering of the timber showing, mainly on the underside. The lid is an offcut of Tasmanian Oak, a much lighter and softer timber, with distinctive striped grain. The box is approximately 11cm in diameter and 7cm tall on the outside. The inside is about 9cm wide and 3cm deep.

The timber has been sanded finely, and finished with a thin coat of wax, so you can see and feel the grain. The finish is smooth and glossy, especially on the box itself, though it may soften to a lower sheen over time.

The shape of every piece I turn is made up as I go. Combined with natural variations of the timber, this means that every piece is unique.

Beautifully made - I purchased several of these for discerning friends and family who love the idea of rescuing and reusing wood that would otherwise go to waste. This is a gift that the receiver will always treasure, especially wood conisseurs
