This type of handcrafted box is buit like any other box then I shaved down the sides using power tools for the rough shape then using a hand planes I fine tune the shape. The effect is a box that almost floats on air with the bottom and the top sloping away from the center. The body of the box is Cherry with added slip feathers of Maple at each corner. The top is Birds Eye Maple surrounded by Maple with an inlayed strip of Walnut. It's 11 ½" long x 7 ½" wide x 4" tall. The inside tray is 9 ½" x 4"x ¾" deep with two sections. The area under the tray is 1" deep. The top pivots on two brass dowel pins.
Cost would be $225 Make to Order
