Handmade keepsake box featuring a Spalted Maple top, Walnut sides lined with Tiger Maple, and a distressed tortoise shell leather bottom.

Lots of special craftsmen's touches in this box. First, I lined the interior of the Walnut sides with Tiger Maple... the grain on the inside and the outside flows seamlessly from one side to the next. When the box is opened it's always a lovely surprise to see a different species than what's on the exterior... it's a lot of extra work, and not a feature you will commonly find as a result, but I believe in putting as much energy into making the interior as special as I do the exterior of the box.

The sides are reinforced with maple miter keys to both add to the strength of the joint as well as add a contrasting element which touches on the light tones in the Maple top.

This one of a kind box features hand planed texture to the rim of the box top. I used a high-end hand plane to create this texture that cannot be made by mechanical means due to the extremely fine detail. This detail adds a pleasant tactile feel as you open and close the top as well as unique visual element.

Finally, from my vast selection of lining materials I found this distressed tortoise shell leather to be a perfect fit to pull it all together with a very Earth-toned feel.

My work is distinguished by quality over quantity as reflected in my feedback. I have limited offerings as each box is the fruit of many hours of labor where my entire focus is on making that box special and getting all the fine details correct.

A very unique box full of figure and finished with several coats of a hand-rubbed oil/varnish.

Exterior Dimensions: 11.5" x 7.75" x 4.5"
Interior Dimensions: 10.5" x 7.5" x 3.5"
Depth of Bottom Portion of Box: 2.5"

Earth-Toned, Leather-lined Keepsake Box With Hand Planed Texture. A Nice Gift For Fathers Day.
