His boxes are superbly crafted using hand-cut dovetails creating extremely strong and eye catching corner joints showing the makers skills.

Philip’s boxes will pass down through the generations.

Each box has Philip’s signature, a joined P and S carved on the inside. His boxes include very fine detailing such as carved handles and marquetry. Philip uses the best quality hinges available either from Andrew Crawford or Ian Hawthorne.
