Handmade keepsake box featuring an impressive Walnut Burl top, Walnut sides lined with Tiger Maple, and a chocolate brown leather lined bottom.

The walnut burl that I used in this top is one of the finer walnut burls I've come across. Very wild, beautiful grain.

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 both solid ebony and maple miter keys to both add to the strength of the joint as well as add an interesting visual element. I used numerous keys, 20 in total, as a point of emphasis on this box. Twelve of the keys are solid gabon ebony and the other eight are the maple.

Finally, from my vast selection of lining materials I went with a quality chocolate leather with a nice soft hand. This particular leather is a perfect match for walnut.

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: 11.25" x 7" x 4"
