Handcrafted keepsake box featuring both a quilted and spalted Maple top. The sides are Walnut sides lined with another selection of figured Maple and the bottom is lined with a chocolate leather.

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 over a single timber box, but I believing in putting as much energy into making the interior special as I do the exterior.

In order to really pull out the quilting figure in the top I took the finishing beyond several coats of a hand-rubbed finish and buffed out the finish to high sheen with a wax topcoat.

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.

I took a departure from the normal on this box in that I also lined the underside of the box with material which looks pretty sharp in combination with my labels.

Pictures taken with flash. Since video better shows the quality of materials and craftsmanship than pictures I've taken a video for you to view.

Exterior Dimensions: 8″ x 6″ x 3.5″
Interior Dimensions: 7.5″ x 5.5″ x 2.75″
Depth of Bottom Portion of Box: 2″

All my boxes are signed and dated on the bottom.

My work is distinguished by quality (as reflected in my feedback) over quantity. 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.

I generally ship my orders within 24 hours of payment received (and cleared if check/echeck) via USPS Priority Mail. I ship internationally frequently and I ship USPS International Priority. Please note that I will refund any overage on International Shipping costs. You pay exact shipping only.

A message from me on Integrity and Ethics:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I take as much pride in crafting my own words in my listings as I do the boxes. Unfortunately when you do things well you will be copied and that is happening with my words here on Etsy.

I write 100% of the wording in my listings and it has become evident that another boxmaker steals a large amount of my words. Hopefully the negative feedback earned by this unethical seller will speak all that is needed to be spoken, but rest assured that if you read my sentences elsewhere that they did, in fact, originate with me.

And to that effect, please don't hesitate to email me, or any other seller for that matter, before you make a purchase. I can promise you that you will find a level of articulation in my correspondence reflective of the language used in my listings and that you will not find that level from those that steal my words.

Trustworthiness is vital in an online business and I want to ensure you that you can trust that the words you read in my listings are the true words written from me to you.

Proud to serve you as an honest, ethical seller running an ethical business!
Charles
