This jewellery box was made for the CEO of one of the large high street banks. It has a burr walnut panel in the lid and burr walnut drawer fronts. Maple was used for the interior tray and drawer parts. The client specified an adaption of the “I love New York” logo on the box with his wife’s initials used and the numbers in the heart representing her 60th birthday.
This box was commissioned for a Noah’s ark collection. The animals sit in the segmented drawers. The wooden ark is housed in the top section. The measurements are 350mm wide, 240mm deep, 245mm high. The lid and drawer fronts are veneered in burr walnut. The handles are African blackwood and the inlay is ebony. The inner drawer parts are maple. Lined in black velvet.
This box was made to house technical equipment.The client wanted a well made box but not a very fancy box so no burrs were used. The hinges are more heavy duty with 3 screws holding each leaf as opposed to the usual 2. The handle is made up of 5 pieces laminated together. The 2 thinner strips in the handle are at right angles to the other 3 to increase the strength. The ebony escutcheon plate is slightly proud of the surface.
This box is a tea caddy and was made for a 25th wedding anniversary gift. The measurements are 250mm wide, 180mm deep, 120mm high. The client provided the lettering design and Celtic knot designs. Sand shading was used to scorch the edges of the sycamore veneer to give the impression of depth where the letters flow under each other.
