Cliff Gidney - A Journey into Box Making

From an early age I had an interest in drawing and design. I studied design and technology with wood and metal subjects but never really pursued it after college as life brought many distractions in the form of travelling and an IT career.

It was while working and living in Belgium, that I was introduced to bronze sculpting. This piqued my interest in the arts in general, and crafts in particular. The craft I was drawn to most was furniture making. The wealth and precision of traditional hand working, contemporary furniture making techniques, and the natural beauty of the wood strongly attracted me.

I trained as a designer/maker with one of the leading furniture makers in the United Kingdom. Box making requires the same creativity in design, attention to detail, and the good hand skills needed for fine furniture making. I enjoy how box making brings these attributes together more readily within smaller discrete projects, affording me the time and opportunity to experiment with both design and making methods.

Welcome to the Fineboxmaker shop. I hope you enjoy the handmade decorative boxes that you see here.

I work with carefully selected hardwood and veneers and use both traditional and contemporary techniques to produce decorative boxes. I design the boxes and make them myself.

My aim is to create a number of limited edition ranges, each with a small number of boxes. This is ideally so that I can experiment with other designs and to maintain some exclusivity within each range.

I will offer some additional options on some boxes, and not others.

However, I can customise any of the box designs for an additional fee or you can commission me to design something new.

Please don't hesitate to contact me.

All things are possible....

This does not necessarily affect a box with chosen options offered as a variation to a standard box. However, initials as an option is considered personalised custom work as it cannot be sold on.
