Product description: It's so much fun making a box when one can find some outstanding woods to work with. That's the case with this piece. My friend Kevin in Pennsylvania specializes in just such woods and was the source for the highly figured Birdseye Maple. The equally rich figured Sapele veneer is from West Africa. The box is approximately 11 1/2" X 8 1/2" front to back, and 6 1/2" high. The hinges are American made, solid milled brass, and have built in stops to hold the lid open. The lining material is a faux suede, heavy duty upholstery fabric that is both elegant and very durable. The top tray, which lifts out, has two open ares for thinks like chains, or necklaces that can be laid flat. Beneath that is a half-width sliding tray. It can also be lifted out but does not need to be, as sliding it left or right will give full access the the full width divided lower compartment. The divider grids in both the tray and the lower compartment can be easily removed should you wish. Lastly, the entire box is finished in multiple coats of satin lacquer.

Thus, every piece I make starts with wood selection. Only when the wood is selected, can I then proceed to the design of the final piece I want to create. As a result, even though...read more
